No she has not admitted to anything as there is a possibility that there is no evidence of marker being on the I.d. The bouncer wiped the id to see the birthdate and clearly read the correct date so there is a possibility that he wiped the evidence away...
Also the bouncer kept the I.D. and it has now changed hands many times...
She filed papers for lost I.D. and they now know it was confiscated. The investigating officer said the bouncer thought it had been altered. All she has said was that her and her friend went to the establishment to watch a sports game and no one was at the door..they sat down and the bouncer came over and checked the id. My daughter gave it to him and he gave it back. The other girl gave it to him and then the bouncer asked them to come outside and then asked my daughter to re see her id. Then they were taken. That is all she said at this point.
She has not misled in the fact that it has not come up in the question and answer interview. She has not lied but she has not told the whole story. No direct question or mention of this has been introduced. Do you think she should admit to doing this? Is it to late to admit to this? I agree with the honesty aspect and she is an honest person. I do not think she could lie as she has no experience in this. Just a good kid who stepped outside the box for the first time and got caught.
