Driver’s License Fraud Attorneys in Miami
Fighting for Your Freedom, Rights And Best Interests
Driver’s license fraud involves the submission of counterfeit identity documents or using another person’s identity to obtain an identification card or driver’s license. These types of offenses also often involve the submission of counterfeit identity documents. Driver’s license fraud can be charged as a third degree felony, so if you are being investigated for this or another identity theft offense, it is critical to contact an experienced white collar crime attorney in Miami who can help protect your interests.
Driver’s License Fraud Defined
In Florida, driver’s license fraud occurs when a person knowingly:
- Possesses a forged, stolen, or counterfeit identification card;
- Possesses a card that is intended to resemble a driver’s license to establish proof of age;
- Sells, manufactures, or delivers a forged, stolen, counterfeit, or blank driver’s license or identification card;
- Trades, sells, or gives a driver’s license or identification card away to someone else;
- Agrees to supply any person with a license or identification card by illegal means;
- Uses a false or fictitious name when filling out a driver’s license application;
- Makes a false statement or conceals a material fact in an application for a driver’s license or identification card; and
- Possesses a license or identification card upon which the date of birth has been changed.
Finally, employees of the Department of Transportation are prohibited from allowing a license to be issued to an applicant if they are aware that he or she does not fulfill the necessary requirements.
Those who are accused of driver’s license fraud can either be charged with a misdemeanor or a third degree felony. For instance, any person who gives a false age on a license application or possesses a card on which the holder’s birth date has been changed can be charged with a second degree misdemeanor, which is punishable by a $500 fine and up to 2 months in jail. However, someone who sells or manufactures forged cards can be charged with a third degree felony, which is punishable by a $5,000 fine and up to 5 years in prison.
However, these are not the only consequences of being convicted of driver’s license fraud, as the department has the discretion to suspend the license of any person as long as there is evidence that he or she fraudulently used a driver’s license. In fact, the department can take this step without even holding a preliminary hearing on the issue.
