The state’s attorney general announced Friday that 34-year-old Peter Loveras of East Rutherford was sentenced Friday in a Hudson County court.

He is also ordered to pay $7,500 in restitution.

Prosecutors say Loveras pleaded guilty to a bribery charge after admitting he acted as a broker in a scheme to sell New Jersey digital driver’s licenses to unauthorized individuals.

Authorities say customers paid up to $7,000 to obtain the licenses because they did not have the required six points of identification.

There are more than 40 people charged in the case, including former clerks at the Jersey City Motor Vehicle Agency.
