A Nebraska City man has been given a two-year sentence for selling identity documents.
A news release from the office of U.S. Attorney Deborah Gilg says Gerardo Rangel Rojas, aka Ivan Lara Rojas, was sentenced last week by U.S. District Judge John Gerrard. Rangel Rojas must serve three years of supervised release after he leaves custody.
Gilg's office says Rangel Rojas was one of 53 people indicted in Puerto Rico. They were accused of obtaining sets of Puerto Rican-issued birth certificates and corresponding U.S. Social Security cards, then selling the documents to people in the Nebraska City area.
