A Guatemalan man was sentenced to two years in federal prison without parole for aggravated identity theft for his role in a conspiracy involving the St. Joseph license office.
Pedro Pablo-Solis, 29, who was living in Liberal, Kan., was sentenced Thursday in federal court, according to Tammy Dickinson, U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Missouri. Mr. Pablo-Solis pleaded guilty in September to providing false identification documents to get licenses for more than 100 illegal immigrants through a St. Joseph license office.
He was the fifth and final defendant to be charged in the case.
His role in the conspiracy was to obtain Social Security cards and birth certificates that were later used by the illegal immigrants to fraudulently obtain identification documents in Missouri.
