Orange County Driver's License Fraud
Driver’s license fraud is when a person uses another person’s identification or uses false documents to obtain a state issued driver’s license. If a person presents a false social security card, green card, or birth certificate when trying to obtain a driver’s license or state identification, he/she can be charged with license fraud by law enforcement.
Once a person is charged with driver’s license fraud, or identification fraud, he/she can be sentenced with a variety of severe legal consequences if he/she is convicted. Some of these consequences may include:
- jail time
- community service
- license suspension
These legal consequences can adversely impact a person’s quality of life for years to come. For this reason, it is always beneficial for a person to retain the services of a skilled Orange County attorney once he/she has been charged with driver’s license fraud or identification fraud.
Consequence: License Revocation for an indefinite Period of Time
Fraud instances include people under 21 who purchase alcoholic beverages from local grocery and liquor stores. If the Department of Alcohol Beverage Control (ABC) is informed that people under age are using false identifications or purchasing false identifications, they are reported to DMV who will then take action on their driving privileges and revoke their driver's license for an indefinite period of time.
A minor attempting to purchase alcoholic beverages with false evidence of age and identity is a violation of Business & Professions Code 25661, a misdemeanor. It is common for a minor who is convicted of attempting to purchase alcohol beverages with a false ID to have their CA driver's license suspended. Our DMV attorneys can provide representation during DMV hearings to defend driving license privileges for individuals facing these charges.
