What are the Penalties for a Minor in Possession of a Fake ID in Missouri?

Missouri law prohibits anyone under the age of 21 of possessing, buying, or attempting to buy intoxicating beverages. It is also against the law for a minor to even appear visibly drunk or to measure more than .02 percent blood alcohol concentration. Altering or reproducing a driver’s license or identification card is also charged as a misdemeanor. The penalties as listed above apply to both of these offenses as well.

The penalties for a conviction of this type are:

  • A misdemeanor charge
  • Potential fines of up to $1,000
