Randolph woman sentenced to prison for fake ID scheme

A Randolph woman was sentenced Monday to eight months in prison for her role in a scheme that provided fake Massachusetts identification documents to undocumented immigrants, the US attorney’s office said.

Kimberly Jordan, 33, a former clerk with the state’s Registry of Motor Vehicles, was also sentenced to two years of supervised release. Jordan and four others pleaded guilty in October to one count of producing without lawful authority an identification document or a false identification document, prosecutors said.

Those individuals — Evelyn Medina, 56, Annette Gracia, 37, David Brimage, 46, and Bivian Yohanny Brea, 41, all of Boston — worked with Angel Miguel Beltre Tejada, 32, a Dominican national living illegally in Jamaica Plain, prosecutors said.

Brea and Tejada would sell stolen documents belonging to US citizens in Puerto Rico to clients seeking false Massachusetts identities, prosecutors said.

Clients included “illegal aliens, individuals who were previously deported, and an individual who admitted to previously facing drug charges,” they said.

Brea and the clients would then bring the documents to Jordan, Medina, Gracia, and Brimage — all clerks at the RMV’s Haymarket branch — who would verify the stolen identities and issue clients authentic Massachusetts licenses and ID cards among other forms of identification, prosecutors said.

Tejada, Jordan, Medina, Gracia, and Brimage received hundreds of dollars in cash for providing false documents. Brea received as much as $2,700 per identity, prosecutors said.

An anonymous letter tipped officials off to the scheme, prosecutors said.

Tejada, the Dominican national, was sentenced in December to two years in prison for aggravated identity theft, and will be subject to deportation upon release. Medina and Gracia were sentenced in January to 15 months and one year in prison, respectively.
