Kansas City man sentenced in fake identification case
KANSAS CITY (AP) - A Kansas City man has been sentenced to two years in federal prison for participating in a conspiracy to sell thousands of fake identification documents to immigrants who are in the country illegally.
The U.S. attorney's office said in a news release that 30-year-old Luis Daniel Cabrera-Guzman also was ordered Tuesday to forfeit about $400,000 to the government. The amount represents the proceeds from the sale of at least 7,100 counterfeit identification documents. Cabrera-Guzman also must also forfeit about $9,400 that was seized when he was arrested.
Court documents said Cabrera-Guzman is a Mexican citizen and had been living illegally in the United State off and on since 2001. He is accused of participating in the conspiracy with three other Missouri co-defendants and a Merriam, Kansas, man.
