Betina Young Sentenced To 5 Christmases In Jail For Driver's License Scam

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- A central Ohio judge has ordered a woman to spend the next five Christmases in jail as part of her sentence for issuing state ID cards and driver's licenses to immigrants who entered the country illegally.

Prosecutors say 44-year-old Betina Young – a former license agency employee – accepted payments from applicants to falsify records showing they had verified their immigration status. She has pleaded guilty.

The Columbus Dispatch reports (http://bit.ly/17AzoIw) that Judge Michael Holbrook put Young on probation Monday for five years – ordering that she spend a minimum of three days in jail each Christmas while on probation.

If she violates probation, she could go to prison for 15 years.
