ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Yvette Roberson was an employee at a privately-owned Missouri Department of Revenue Office in St. Louis County and it’s there that she’s accused of giving Missouri drivers licenses and state identification cards to undocumented immigrants.

Roberson, 59, of St. Louis, pleaded guilty to one felony count of conspiracy defraud, a felony count of producting false ID documents, and two felony counts of aggravated identity theft.

Prosecutors say the scam ran from March, 2010 to December of last year. They say two men – Ricardo Ortiz and Jorge Pesqueda Perez – told the undocumented workers to meet Roberson at the Revenue Office, give her their falsified names and social security numbers, and that Roberson then issued the immigrants drivers licenses and other identification.

Ortiz, 31, of Pacific, pleaded guilty to one felony count of conspiracy to defraud, two felony counts of production of false identification documents and two felony counts of aggravated identity theft, as well as a felony county of illegal re-entry of a previously convicted felon.

Perez, 35, and Elizabeth Cervantes, 27, both pleaded guilty to related charges.
