Re: Getting Caught Using Some One Else’s Id
There are multiple charges possible in Washington revolving around the use of another’s ID. These range from misdemeanors that typically result in a fine to felonies that can result in prison time. The circumstances and how the ID was used determines what the appropriate charge would be. Without knowing the specific statute your “friend” is charged with, nobody can say more.
If your “friend” simply used a non-stolen ID to get into an alcohol establishment, and nothing else, the appropriate charge would be 66.44.310 or similar local ordinance. That is a misdemeanor that typically results in a fine.
Keep in mind, if your “friend” had permission from the person to whom the ID belonged, that person can be charged with a crime too.
Behind the badge is a person. Behind the person is an ego. This is as it should be, person at the center and ego to the back.
