False Identification Cases in the State of Florida

Florida State Statue 322.212 is the law that makes most activities involving fake IDs felonies. Some of the cases that attorney Salazar handles include:

  • Possessing stolen, forged, or blank driver's license or identification cards
  • Possessing a fake Florida ID
  • Possessing a fake ID from anywhere else that Florida recognizes as an issuing authority
  • Selling or offering to sell fake, blank, or stolen IDs
  • Giving away a valid drivers license or ID card for the purpose of the recipient using it for false identification
  • Using false identification or information to secure a state ID or driver's license

The laws of the state of Florida are written in such a way that you could be charged with a felony if a police officer finds a fake ID in your pocket even if you didn't intend to use it for anything. You could also be charged with a felony for trying to use false identification to get into a bar or club.
