Person Wrongfully Convicted of Trying to Obtain a Florida ID Card Using a False Name

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.
