Georgia law imposes $250,000 fine for using fake ID towards gaining employment

While parts of the Georgia immigration law haven’t taken effect because of a federal injunction, one did on July 1: Use false identification for a job and receive up to 15 years in prison and up to a $250,000 fine. The offense is called “aggravated identity fraud.”

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has details:

It applies to everyone, not just illegal immigrants. The penalties are on par with possessing up to 10,000 pounds of marijuana.

“It’s a harsh penalty,” said Frank Rotondo, executive director of the Georgia Association of Chiefs of Police. “But it is meant as an eye-opener, to send a message.”

In addition to illegal immigrants, those the law might snare, officials said, are deadbeat parents who are trying to hide income and young people lying about their age in order to get a job. (However, penalties are lower — no more than three years and $5,000 — for culprits younger than 21.)

Before July 1, the crime of using a false form of identification often resulted in probation and a small fine, Rotondo said.

As in Arizona, the stricter parts of the law dealing with employment verification have taken effect, while the measures allowing — or even compelling — police to ascertain the legal status of immigrants have been put on hold because of court challenges.
