University student pleads not guilty to manufacturing fake I.D.’s

By Sky Opila

Peter White, sophomore in Business, pled not guilty to a charge of manufacturing and duplicating driver’s licenses, a Class 4 felony, Thursday afternoon.

White, a resident at Scott Hall, was arrested on April 19 after University police were allegedly tipped off to his business.

White appeared in court without counsel on April 25 where Assistant State’s Attorney Chris Kanis said that University Police served a search warrant on April 23 where they discovered a printer, blank identification cards, a laminating machine, a digital camera and out of state driver’s licenses. Kanis said White admitted to making the fake IDs for students and charging money.

If convicted, White’s Class 4 felony charge carries penalties such as probation, fines and/or one to three years in prison.

He will appear in court again for pretrial on June 12.
