ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) – A man has been convicted in a fake driver’s license ring in New Mexico and could face up to 124 ½ years in prison when he’s sentenced in November.
Prosecutors say Tin Cheung was found guilty on 77 counts Monday.
Cheung was accused of helping dozens of people in the country illegally get New Mexico driver’s licenses.
He was among six defendants charged with forgery, conspiracy and other charges.
They were accused of running advertisements in New York newspapers in 2009 and 2010, promising New Mexico driver’s licenses for $1,500.
The defendants also allegedly leased multiple Albuquerque apartments and used those addresses for the false documents.
The New Mexico Motor Vehicle Division ultimately cancelled each fraudulently obtained driver’s license.
