License OfficeA St Joseph woman has pleaded guilty for her part in a scheme to help illegal aliens obtain licenses.

62-year-old Isabel Ramirez Mendoza pleaded guilty Thursday in US District Court in Kansas City.

US District Attorney Tammy Dickinson says Mendoza helped well over 100 illegal aliens obtain a license at the St Joseph License office. Mendoza and others, including four family members, served under the guise of translators.

Mendoza charged typically $100 for assisting the illegal aliens. They also charged $500 or more to obtain stolen identification documents. Mendoza must forfeit $125,000 to the government and several vehicles that were seized.

Mendoza is subject to a mandatory two-year sentence for aggravated running consecutively to a sentence of up to five years in federal prison without parole, plus a fine up to $500,000.
