Using someone else's ID is a federal offense. Worst case scenario (no lawyer, no plea bargain) = felony.

Not sure that would go to a federal level unless maybe it was a passport. Depending on if the identification was for a real or fictional person, you could be charged with possessing fradulant documents or perhaps something the CA penal code calls personation. As 3onDubs mentioned, potential felony situation. Reality is that it happens everyday, and if you were just looking to get into a club, charges likely wouldn't be too bad...

My roommate got confronted by an officer on the street in our uni's neighborhood because he was walking around drunk with a red cup in his hand (bad idea at 1am). Anyway, the officer just asked him to pour it out but since my roommie was drunk, he kind of tossed it so the officer asked for his id. My roommates brother looks identical to him but is 2 years older (this went down when my roommate was 19 and his brother was 21), and has an extra one of his brothers ids. Well he accidentally pulled his brothers id out and gave it to the officer, and he had to go to court and go through all this bs, 40hrs of community service.

If it's a California ID (in which case I know for a fact that it's fake) I'll confiscate it and write you a ticket for it. A bouncer has no peace officer powers (unless, of course they're an off-duty cop) and would confiscate it at most.

That would be the "personation" that OHC was talking about. If you present ID that is actually someone else (including giving and officer a name and date of birth that belongs to someone else) you can get nailed with a felony. Your roomie may have had it plead down to a misdemeanor if it was his first/only major offense.

i recently just got a speeding ticket and i was wondering how i can receive or arrange a plea bargain. one more question i'm concerned of is, i got pulled over on 2 separate occasions. 1 by CHP and one by a regular police officer and received a fix-it ticket, both regarding my tinted windows. i was wondering how much the fine would be for not fixing the tinted windows and paying the fine at court and also would i be able to clear both these tickets without paying twice for it if the windows were fixed?

Regarding the speeding ticket, there is no plea bargaining an infraction. Either you're guilty or your not, thats it.

As for the tint tickets, assuming both are showing correctable on the citation, get it fixed, have them both signed off, and you'll be responsible for paying the court a $10 admin fee for each.

If you don't get it fixed (take your tint off, get it signed, pay $10), you will eventually get a warrant for not taking care of the ticket by the specified time. This will require you to go to court and stand before a judge, who will then tell you to pay a specified amount and the case will be dropped. I'm not sure how much this will be for tinted windows (no cheaper than $150) and you will waste your whole day in court. It would be the same thing if you just take the tint off and put it back on later (probably end up paying less and wasting less time actually....not to mention, you wont have a warrant out for your arrest).

I'm not sure that I've ever seen a correctable go to warrant...I guess in theory it could happen...Joel, you heard of this?

Yup...happened to me..lol

It's not that serious, but still, a warrant is a warrant. When you don't take care of a ticket by the due date printed on the ticket that comes in the mail, you'll get one of those yellow cards that has a bail amount and due date printed on it. I believe that you can just pay the bail amount at the window, unless you wish to have it reduced by speaking to the judge (not sure on that part though).

Hi Frobie15,
Yesterday going home, I saw a 350z and an old integra race on the freeway, excess of at least 90 as they flew by me. Of course them being stupid, going all over the lanes and weaving to the point of hitting people. A motorcycle cop acutally caught them 10 minutes later which was awesome as they were real retarded in doing what they were doing as it was crowded on the freeway. My question is what is the punishment on the 1st offense and then the repeating people that got caught before.

First offense is a hefty fine and their cars get towed. After that I believe that their cars can get confiscated and sold by the agency who arrests them. There are laws in place now that should seriously deter street racers. But I doubt we can ever stop them.

Frobie: a few months ago, my friend got a motorcycle and has been badgering me ever since to get one. I would like to get one but the problem is that my parents will do everything they can to stop me. Basically it means no more BMW for me if I get one since they payed for it and own it. I know they have good intentions and want to keep me safe but I still feel oppressed since I'm almost 19. What my other friend (who also wants a motorcycle) and I have been planning is to split the cost of a learner bike and have the insurance under his name so I can keep it a secret from my parents. So I want to know the legality of riding a bike legally owned and insured by someone else. If you could tell me how this would all work out, I would really appreciate it. I you want to criticize me for wanting to be dishonest with my parents, thats fine to.

As long as you have the M1 endorsement on your CDL, you can ride it. Keep proof of insurance for the bike with you. It should cover you while you ride it since you're not the owner. Those two things will keep you legal.
