January 30, 2013

BOSTON - An former employee of the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles, located in Revere, was charged today in U.S. District Court on charges related to producing a false identification document.

Alexander Brewer, 24, of Boston, was charged in a criminal complaint with conspiracy to defraud the United States in connection with producing false identification documents.

It is alleged that from December 2011 through December 2012, Brewer knowingly and willfully issued Massachusetts driver’s licenses to individuals who presented legitimate Puerto Rican identity documents, in an identity other than their own, to obtain Massachusetts driver’s licenses for the purposes of concealing their true identities.

The punishment under the statute is up to five years in prison to be followed by up to three years of supervised release and up to a $250,000 fine.

United States Attorney Carmen M. Ortiz; Bruce M. Foucart, Special Agent in Charge of the Homeland Security Investigations in Boston; and Colonel Timothy Alben, Superintendent of the Massachusetts State Police made the announcement today. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Eugenia M. Carris of Ortiz’s Public Corruption & Special Prosecutions Unit.

The Complaint affidavit sets forth allegations. The defendant is presumed to be innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
