Hi,

I'm Zoey.

I've reviewed your post. Was your friend charged with a crime? How long ago did this happen?

No they took it from him and told him to leave this happend this past weekend
Lawyer: Zoey, JD, Attorney replied 10 months ago

Thanks for the reply.

They could have called the police and arrested him for possession of a fake ID. Instead, they took his fake ID, and, hopefully, that will just be the end of it. If not, as the ID has your name and address on it, you'll likely get something in the mail if the bar turns it over to the authorities. At that point, you'll be charged with the fake ID and you'd be able to fight this case with a criminal lawyer, as you were not at the Austin club and were not the one with the ID in his possession.

In any case, it's the kind of charge that can generally be dealt with in such a way as to avoid both jail and a misdemeanor conviction. There are diversion and deferred adjudication opportunities for offenses like this one, so that a young person doesn't ruin his life just because he had a fake ID to try to drink while underaged.

Will my mother find out about this somehow?
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
i just turned 18 years old and im a senior in highschool so i still live at home
Lawyer: Zoey, JD, Attorney replied 10 months ago

If you're going to be charged with a crime, you're 18, so you'd be charged in adult court. Your mother's presence wouldn't be necessary. You're not a minor.

I can't promise you that your mother won't find out. If she gets the mail or picks up the phone before you do, she could.

Best case scenario -- the bouncer destroys the fake ID. No harm. No foul.

Worst case scenario -- the police will try to find you and charge you. They can get your real address from their driver database.
