More charges have been filed in a scheme to provide bogus driver's licenses and other documents to illegal immigrants.
Raylynn S. Brooks, the wife of a man earlier implicated in the scam, faces charges, according to documents filed Monday in federal court in Oakland.
Brooks and her husband, co-defendant Jose Ramirez, worked at the
state Department of Motor Vehicle in 2005, authorities said.
Ramirez allegedly recruited clients willing to pay $1,000 to $1,500 to get a false driver's license, according to court records.
Brooks allegedly got fake receipts for clients from then-DMV worker
Marla Robinson, the documents say, and clients then took the receipts into the DMV where Robinson processed their driver's licenses.
Robinson pleaded guilty in December to conspiracy to commit mail fraud.
She was sentenced to a year and a day in prison.
Ramirez pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit honest services mail fraud in January, but has yet to be sentenced.
Four other DMV workers in the Oakland office were convicted in the case.
