Possession of Forged Driver License

Orange County Forgery Defense Attorney

Any person who is in possession of a forged driver license can be charged with a felony.  This crime also includes trying to use or displaying a forged driver license/I.D.  Just having the forged identification in your possession, without using it, is enough to be charged.

Having a forged driver license will be considered committing forgery.  This crime can be charged as either a felony or a misdemeanor.  The prosecution will usually charge the crime as a felony to have higher leverage against you.

A felony conviction can result in up to 3 years of imprisonment.  It is important to be represented by an attorney because of the leverage the prosecution has at the starting gate.  The goal in representation would be to avoid a felony conviction and ultimately get the entire case dismissed.
