Falsified Identification (Fake IDs)
It is impossible for an individual to determine his or her blood alcohol content when drinking in the absence of a breathalyzer or other test. Some people do not even feel the effect of the alcohol, but their BAC tells a different story. Every year, thousands of people are pulled over in Rhode Island under the suspicion they are driving under the influence. Penalties in the event of conviction may be increased in the event the individual displays a false form of identification during their arrest.
If you have been arrested for DUI and presented the arresting officer with a fake ID, there could be additional complications, so it is critical that you are represented by a tenacious legal advocate.

Misrepresenting Your Age
It is illegal for any individual under the age of 21 to try to purchase or consume alcohol. Yet the statistics suggest that underage drinking is extremely common and that many teenagers buy or borrow false identification documents in order to obtain alcohol. If a minor is pulled over after drinking, he or she may show the fake ID under the misguided belief that it will deceive the police. If the officer recognizes it as not genuine, additional charges may be sought against a minor, making vigorous criminal defense absolutely essential.
