Prison Time For Broker Of Illegal NJ Drivers Licenses
State Attorney general Jeff Chiesa says Hildeberto Salinas has been sentenced to four years in a state prison today for acting as a broker in a conspiracy involving a former clerk in the Lodi Motor Vehicle Agency to illegally sell New Jersey digital driver’s licenses to unauthorized persons.
In pleading guilty, Salinas admitted that he brokered sales of New Jersey digital driver’s licenses which were issued out of the Lodi Motor Vehicle Agency to individuals who did not have the required six points of identification. On March 12, a former clerk who participated in the scheme, Anne Marie Manfredonia, 44, of Little Ferry, pleaded guilty to second-degree conspiracy and third-degree tampering with public records before Judge Roma. The state will recommend that she be sentenced to four years in prison, including two years of parole ineligibility. She will be permanently barred from public employment in New Jersey. Manfredonia is scheduled to be sentenced on May 10.
The investigations were conducted by members of the Division of Criminal Justice MVC Unit, within the Specialized Crimes Bureau, and the Motor Vehicle Commission’s Division of Security, Investigation and Internal Audit.
