In the case of Keith Rancifer v. the State of Florida, Mr. Rancifer was convicted of trying to obtain a Florida identification card using a false name. However, the court of appeals overturned his conviction because:
1. It was undisputed that the birth certificate that Rancifer presented when he obtained the identification card was a certified copy of his actual birth certificate that was contained in records from New York State; and
2. The name on that birth certificate was the only legal name that Rancifer could have used when trying to obtain a Florida ID card.
