Ex-Wis. DOT employee, others indicted for fake IDs


 MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A federal grand jury has indicted six people, including a former state Department of Transportation worker, with conspiring to produce fake driver's licenses.


According to the indictment and federal prosecutors, 36-year-old Khue Xiong used his position at a state DOT Division of Motor Vehicles office in Stevens Point to produce about 70 fake driver's licenses for illegal immigrants between the end of 2009 and mid-2010.

The others members of the alleged conspiracy found buyers for the licenses and collected cash from them. They kept some of the money for themselves and funneled some of it to Xiong. They then passed on the licenses to the buyers.

Online court records did not list an attorney for Xiong.
