It may seem innocent enough: you’re a college student who wants to hang out with your friends at a bar or watch a concert at a 21-plus venue, but you’re not yet 21. So you get a fake ID so you, too, can join in the fun. What you may not know is that it is illegal to carry and/or use a fake ID to enter an adults-only establishment or purchase items that are only available to people 21 or older.
If you slip by without getting caught using a fake ID, consider yourself lucky. But what if you weren’t so lucky?
