Two indicted on license charges

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        Two Mexican immigrants living in Cincinnati face jail and deportation for attempting to get driver's licenses under fake names that already had been used by two other illegal immigrants.

        A Hamilton County grand jury indicted the two men Friday on charges of forgery, tampering with records and possession of criminal tools. If convicted, each could be sentenced to three years in prison and deported to Mexico.

        Prosecutors say the two men — Bulfrano Antunez-Garrido, 18, and his brother, Jesus, 24 — were arrested last week after they applied for licenses at the Bureau of Motor Vehicles office in Mount Healthy. Authorities say a clerk at the office checked the names and Social Security numbers the two men used and found that the same names and numbers already had been used.

        Authorities found all using the names had obtained them illegally after entering the country from Mexico, prosecutors said.
