(KOLOTV.com) -- The U.S. Department of Justice says Marilyn Millender, 52, of North Las Vegas took bribes while working last year.
In a statement, U.S. Attorney Greg Brower said Millender was "indicted by the Federal Grand Jury on charges that she solicited and accepted cash in exchange for issuing official Nevada driver’s licenses and identification cards to illegal aliens".
The briberies allegedly took place between June 1, 2007 and December 30, 2007 at a DMV office on Decatur Blvd. in Las Vegas. Millender worked as a front-line licensing clerk.
“Illegally obtained government-issued identification documents can be used to commit a wide range of illegal acts, including terrorism, and can significantly impede law enforcement activities. This is a serious crime, with serious consequences.”
The D.O.J. claims the transactions involved $5,000 or more. Millender is also facing a charge of False Statements. She's accused of lying about the alleged incidents.
Millender was arrested on Friday, September 3, 2008.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Paul Padda is prosecuting the case.
