New Jersey's attorney general says a former motor vehicles clerk has been sentenced to prison after admitting his role in a wide-ranging scheme to illegally sell New Jersey digital driver's licenses to customers who did not have the required identification.
Cristian J. Toledo was given a four year prison sentence Friday in Hudson County superior court. The 33-year-old North Bergen resident was a clerk at the North Bergen Motor Vehicle Agency. He pleaded guilty in march to a computer theft charge. Prosecutors say Toledo was among 40 people charged in December with operating a ring that illegally sold driver licenses that were explicitly designed to guard against fraud, mostly to ineligible foreign nationals. Authorities say customers paid between $2,500 and $7,000 for a license or license renewal.
