Man gets 2 years in prison in St. Joseph scam

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) - A Guatemalan man who was living in Kansas will serve two years in prison for his role in an identity theft scam involving the St. Joseph license office.

Twenty-nine-year-old Pedro Pablo-Solis, of Liberal, Kan., was sentenced Thursday to two years without parole for aggravated identity theft.

He pleaded guilty in September to providing false identification documents to get licenses for more than 100 illegal immigrants through a St. Joseph license office.

The St. Joseph News-Press reports that prosecutors say he obtained Social Security cards and birth certificates that were used by people in the country illegally to obtain identification documents in Missouri.
