Aug 31, 2005 1:57 PM
A former driver for a Virginia trucking company has been ordered deported after presenting a counterfeit commercial driver license to a law enforcement officer.
Francisco Palacios of Bolivia, also known as Fredy Molina, a driver for Covitta Inc, Lorton VA, pleaded guilty to presenting the counterfeit CDL at a truck scales in Virginia, according to information from the Department of Transportation's Office of the Inspector General (OIG).
Palacios, an illegal alien, was sentenced in US District Court in Alexandria VA to 10 weeks time served in prison and will be deported.
An overweight vehicle citation issued to Palacios at the truck scales in April 2005 indicated that Palacios had presented a fraudulent New Jersey CDL (identifying Molina by name, but with Palacio’s photo) to a Virginia State Police officer, according to the OIG information.
