The Maricopa County, Arizona, officials claimed Briseria Torres was an illegal alien and charged her with three counts of forgery for having falsely obtained a driver's license.

She was finally freed and the charges against her dropped after her attorneys presented a judge with a birth certificate showing that she was born in the United States.
