A Mexican man was sentenced to two years and 10 months in prison on Wednesday for providing fake documents to undocumented workers and others in the Carolinas and Georgia.
Humberto Ginez-Edmundo, 27, charged $130 to $600 for the fake Social Security cards, state identification cards, driver’s licenses and permanent residence cards he produced beginning in November 2015, court records show.
Ginez-Edmundo was convicted of fraudulent identification document conspiracy and aggravated identity theft. Chief U.S. District Judge Frank Whitney sentenced him in federal court in Charlotte.
Ginez-Edmundo will face deportation proceedings after serving his sentence, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Charlotte said.
