Mass. Worker Accused of Giving Illegal Licenses

gavel 2BOSTON (AP) — Federal prosecutors have charged a former worker at the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles with giving driver’s licenses to people he knew were using false identities.

Prosecutors said Wednesday that 24-year-old Alexander Brewer of Boston was working in the RMV’s Revere office. They say he allowed people he knew were using legal Puerto Rico identity documents that didn’t belong to them to get state driver’s licenses.

RMV Registrar Rachel Kaprielian said in a statement Brewer worked as a customer service representative for the agency from August 2010 until recently. She said the RMV’s auditors discovered the irregularities and reported them to law enforcement.

Brewer is charged with conspiracy to defraud the federal government by producing false identification documents.

It’s not immediately known if he has an attorney.
