Legal Question

Asked on: 8/04/13, 11:12 am

I was at a concert last night and a cop caught me using my friends ID, who looks just like me and is 21, to buy alcohol. I'm only 20. They originally questioned me because they saw me giving sips of beer to people who were under age, It happened again and that's when the cop took me to his car stationed towards the back of the concert. This is when they searched me and found my friends license on me. They gave me a ticket for violation 509-6. It doesn't say anything about alcohol on the ticket just "Usage of another's license..." and then the ID number. The top of the ticket says "New York State Department of Motor Vehicles Uniform Traffic Ticket". I am wondering what the punishment is and if I should get a lawyer. What will happen to my friend?
