Failure to Identify Laws in Fort Worth

There are two different types of situations that can lead to failure to identify charges in Texas, including:

  • Refusing to provide personal identification information to an arresting officer upon request
  • Providing false or fictitious identification information to the arresting officer

Those who refuse to provide the requested information can be charged with a Class C misdemeanor. This is the least serious of all misdemeanor charges, having no jail time and a maximum penalty of $500. If the individual was a fugitive from justice at the time the crime was committed, the charge will be elevated to a Class B misdemeanor. The consequences for this type of charge can consist of up to 180 days in jail and a maximum fine of $2,000.

When the failure to identify violation involves falsified information, it is charged as a Class B misdemeanor. Anyone who is a fugitive when the offense takes place will be charged with a Class A misdemeanor. The penalties for this charge increase to a maximum jail sentence of one year and a fine of up to $4,000.
