Accused of having or making fake IDs? Michael L. Fell will provide an aggressive defense.
Many college students have fake IDs. Like them, you might have thought this was no big deal. After all, you probably only used your fake ID to get into clubs or buy alcohol while you were in that nebulous 18 to 20 age range, where you’re “adult” enough to vote and join the military but not to drink.
But now that you’ve been caught with a fake ID by authorities, you suddenly realize that fake IDs are not just harmless fun—they are serious business that can result in life-altering criminal penalties, not to mention school discipline and a one-year driver’s license suspension.
The good news is…
Michael L. Fell will help you resolve fake ID charges as quickly and painlessly as possible.
As soon as you are arrested for possessing or using a fake ID, you need to call an experienced defense attorney. Michael L. Fell makes an excellent choice for college students because he understands the criminal justice system and the school administrative process, and he can help you defend yourself in both forums. He has handled many of these cases with very favorable results.
Who Better to Fight Back Against Aggressive Prosecution than a Former Prosecutor?
Though you might not have thought your fake ID was a big deal, prosecutors may be able to pursue felony penalties against you. As a former Orange County Senior Deputy District Attorney who trained prosecutors for 18 years, Michael L. Fell can help stop aggressive prosecutors in their tracks by presenting effective defense arguments. For example, he may be able to show that:
- The fake ID wasn’t yours
- You didn’t realize the ID was fake
- You didn’t plan to use the ID to deceive anyone
- The police discovered the ID during an illegal search and seizure
- Your personal and school background equitably calls for a lesser punishment
This could very well result in the criminal charges against you being dropped.
Want to Make a Deal?
Even if the evidence against you is strong, you should not give up on securing a favorable outcome to your case. For example, Attorney Fell may be able to use his expertise in creative sentencing to convince the prosecution to allow you to plea down to an alternative charge for a less serious crime that carries lighter penalties and will not result in your driver’s license being taken away.
