Can an illegally copied government id (18 U.S.C. § 701) be admissible as evidence in court for identity theft? 4 Answers as of February 27, 2011
Photocopying a government id is illegal (18 U.S.C. § 701). However, if the ID were a technically a fake (but not provable since a tangible ID is not present), could a photocopy (taken by a vendor that the ID thief attempted to fool) still be used as evidence to prove that the person's picture on the fake govt ID is guilty of identity theft?
