Fake Vehicle Registration
Call Our Experienced Chicago Criminal Defense Attorneys
Motor vehicle registration is used to establish an official link between
a vehicle and its owner. The government or law enforcement might use this
link for taxation or crime detection purposes. While most cars can be
identified by their vehicle identification number (VIN), only registered
vehicles display a vehicle registration plate and carry a registration
certificate. In the United States, passenger and commercial vehicles must
be recorded as a condition of using the public road. However, registration
varies from state to state and prosecuting the violation of this law also differs.
Sometimes people fake vehicle registration when they want to avoid the
fee. If you’ve been accused of falsifying your registration documents
or license sticker, make sure you have an experienced Arlington Heights
criminal defense lawyer on your side.

According to Illinois law, a person who commits such an act is guilty of
a felony and can earn anywhere from 1 year in jail and a fine of up to
$2,500 to 3 to 7 years in jail. The severity of the charge depends on
the circumstance. For example, the lightest penalty would be a Class A
misdemeanor for violation of the law against using a registration sticker
or document not authorized by law for use on a vehicle or allowing a person
to use false or illegal documents to fake car registration. The most severe
charge, a Class 2 felony, would be a case in which someone knowingly uses
any false documents knowing that they have been stolen or altered.
