Carring a fake ID

Sam :


My name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to providing you information in this regard

Sam :

The possible penaly under Texas law is a fine not to exceed $4000 and or up to one year in jail

Sam :

However, if this is a first offense, I suggest that the jail will be suspended and probation will be ordered

Customer: Ok the licence was also in his name
Customer: So he wasn't intending to harm someone else ..just bad collage choice
Customer: Any chance of having it. Dropped altogether?
Sam :

Well, tell me briefly what happened please? How does the charge come about?

Customer: He was at a football game and was pulled over at a stop on his way back to his dorm.
Sam :

Customer: some how the officer got theIDs that are fake and in his name
Sam :

a "deferred adjudication"

Sam :

That means, he takes a plea for the probation and agrees that if he completes it then the guilty will be revisited and the court will remove the conviction from his record

Sam :

But he cannot get into any more trouble at all, whatsoever
