There are many reasons why a minor under the age of 21 will want to obtain a fake ID, for the purpose of drinking or others. A juvenile under the age of 18 can face very serious penalties for conviction of a fake ID charge. According to ARS §4-241 it is illegal to use a fake ID to cause a person to sell, serve, give or furnish you with alcohol, or to gain entry into a licensed establishment such as a nightclub. There are other crimes that can be committed by the usage of a fake ID such as providing false information to a law enforcement officer, and providing false information to the Motor Vehicle Division as well as others.
If you are charged with using a fake ID to obtain entry into a licensed establishment such as a nightclub then you will face Class 1 misdemeanor charges that carry penalties of six months in jail and a fine up to $2,500 if you are convicted of this crime. You can face the same penalties for conviction if you provide false information to a police officer via usage of this fake ID.
