Judge Sentences Woman to Christmases in Jail for Giving Driver's Licenses to Illegal Immigrants

Yes, let's punish her family, too


A central Ohio judge has ordered a woman to spend the next five Christmases in jail as part of her sentence for issuing state ID cards and driver's licenses to immigrants who entered the country illegally.

Prosecutors say 44-year-old Betina Young – a former license agency employee – accepted payments from applicants to falsify records showing they had verified their immigration status. She has pleaded guilty.
