COLUMBUS, Ohio (July 23, 2013)—A judge in central Ohio has ordered a woman to spend the next five Christmases in jail as part of her sentence for issuing state ID cards and driver's licenses to immigrants who entered the country illegally.
Betina Young, 44, a former license agency employee, was convicted of accepting payments from applicants to falsify records showing they had verified their immigration status.
After she pleaded guilty to the charges, Judge Michael Holbrook put her on probation for five years and ordered that she spend a minimum of three days in jail each Christmas while on probation.
If she violates the terms of the probation, she could go to prison for 15 years.
