Ultimately, it's the discretion of the LEO, that determines whether or not it will even go to court. The fact that it's a copy, NOT the real ID, I think won't really matter. The last thing an officer would want to do, is to travel around matching up IDs.
Just to let you know. If the person(sting) gives you a fake id and the bartender did there job by looking at the date and photo you HAVE to ask the person are they under 21. They can not lie to you. It is entrapment. I always ask people before i get their id if they are underage. We had a city sting and did this as well as asked for the person's id. They said they are underage. I passed the inspection. So ALWAYS ALWAYS ask if they are of age before seeing an ID. it will cover your ass! If it is not a cop and they say they are over the drinking age and it is a fake ID. You are not responsible as the bartender if busted. It falls on the person with the fake ID.

Good to know! I've always asked if they were over legal age..unless the answer was obvious..in past years..and its been a few since I've bartended...most people that came up did not have an ID on them...I'm glad this is being discussed...
