NJ Driver’s License Fraud Ring Is Busted

Hildeberto Salinas admitted today that he brokered sales of New Jersey digital driver’s licenses which were issued out of the Lodi Motor Vehicle Agency to peoples who did not have the required six points of identification.

Last week, a former clerk who participated in the scheme pleaded guilty to tampering with public records.

The state will recommend that Anne Marie Manfredonia be sentenced to four years in prison, including two years of parole ineligibility.  She will be permanently barred from public employment in New Jersey.

Salinas, who pleaded guilty in court today, and Manfredonia were among 40 defendants named in indictments unsealed on Dec. 5, 2011, which also alleged conspiracies to illegally sell driver’s licenses out of the East Orange, Edison, North Bergen and Jersey City motor vehicle agencies.

State Attorney General Jeff Cheisa says in some cases, the customers, who are foreign nationals, did not qualify for a license because they were in the U.S. illegally. In other cases, they lacked sufficient documentation. The customers paid between $2,500 and $7,000 for a license or license renewal, and the MVC clerks and brokers split the proceeds.
