I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear that this happened.

The penalty for using a fake ID to buy alcohol varies by state. What state is your daughter in?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Delaware. I know the penalty. I want to know if it is a misdemeanor or felony. That simple
Expert:  Lucy, Esq. replied 7 months ago.

Thank you.

The penalty is how you can tell if something is a misdemeanor or a felony. A first offense fake ID charge in Delaware is a misdemeanor.
