What is the punishment for using a fake ID?
if i was to use a fake ID to get into a nightclub, what would be the punishment if i was caught by the police?

technically, the club shouldn't get in trouble, as they don't kniow whether the ID is real or not. as long as i have a piece of plastic with my photo and "date of birth" they can let me in.

if the poilce were to come into the club, ask to see the ID i showed, what are the possible punishments?

Using a fake ID is a pretty severe crime, and whether you are doing so to get into a concert, clubs, buying alcohol, or otherwise misrepresent your age or identity, doesn't really matter.

Most State Law punishes the conduct of misrepresenting your identity in two areas: first is the use of the fake identification to do something and second is the tampering or falsification of the actual identification card.

For example:

Arizona law using the fake identification, including Criminal Impersonation (ARS 13-2006) and Forgery (ARS 13-2002). Both of these crimes punish people for assuming a false identity or pretending to be someone (or some age) that they are not in order to get something from the person that they are deceiving.

If you have also actually tampered with the identification yourself, you could be charged with another crime like Tampering with a Public Record (ARS 13-2407). This punishes the act of altering or changing an officially issued piece of documentation like a driver's license. Criminal Impersonation and Tampering with a Public Record are both Class 6 Felonies, which are punished by 6 months to 1 1/2 years in jail. Forgery is a much more serious crime, a Class 4 Felony, and is punished by 1 1/2 to 3 years in jail.

In New York & New Jersey it is a felony criminal offense rather than a traffic violation for possessing a fraudulent or fake driver's license. Offenders can face jail time and have their driver's license suspended for up to 2 years.

In Maryland the fine alone is $1500 plus the loss of driving privileges for up to a year.

In California, the minimum penalty for being caught with a fake ID is $250 fine and up to 32 community service hours. The maximum is a $1,000 fine, six months to a year in the county jail, and a year-long driver's license suspension.

Keep this in mind that in the future when you apply for jobs/college/travel visa, on most applications there is a place that asks "Were you ever convicted of a misdemeanor or a felony?" Do you really want to answer "Yes"? Its definitly not worth it.
