Your friend could be in serious trouble if caught. Tell your friend to get rid of the fake ID.

If he gets caught what does he get though?

You get charged with a crime. It's not worth it. Wait to drink until you are old enough.

In Illinois, having a fake ID is a Class 4 felony. It’s a serious-enough arrest once convicted that it stays on a teenager’s record permanently. It will follow along as he or she applies to college, seeks out an apartment to rent, looks for a loan to buy a car or applies for a job. Have the friend get rid of it ASAP.
