It happens all the time in Florida. A college student or an out-of-state college or high school student on spring break uses a fake ID to get into a nightclub in Florida or purchase alcohol from a liquor store. They do not take into account that there is an undercover cop who is focused on finding and arresting minors who are drinking underage or who are using fake IDs, especially tourists.
We have considerable experience representing minors who have been accused of underage drinking, using a fake ID, a DUI or with other juvenile crimes. We regularly represent tourists who have been arrested, released and have returned to their home state.
Seek Dismissal or Pre-Trial Diversion
There are opportunities along the way to trial to negotiate with a prosecutor. We are adept at using each of these to your advantage. If we cannot get your case dismissed, we seek to get clients admitted to a pre-trial diversion program, which, if completed will result in your case being dismissed. We also help clients clear their records through a process called expungement. With your whole future ahead of you, it is wise to choose a lawyer who understands what you are up against and who can aggressively defend you.
