    Answered . If you have an attorney, speak to him or her as soon as possible. You have a situation where, if properly handled, the DA may not be able to raise the fake ID issue. Ask the attorney about Kellett v. Superior Court 63 Cal.2d 822,827.

    Answered . Get an attorney if you have not already done so. You need to act quickly before the DA amends the complaint to add five counts of false ID. If you work quickly, your attorney may be able to block the other charges from being added.

    Good luck,
