Enrique Mejorada-Cordova, a man charged in federal court with selling false identification documents, has entered into a plea bargain in which he pleaded guilty to one count of the transfer of a fraudulent identification document.
Mejorada-Cordova and a co-defendant, Jorge Gil-Moreno, were arrested in 2007 for allegedly running a fake ID ring in Salt Lake City.
A change of plea hearing has been set for Aug. 21 for Gil-Moreno.
Mejorada-Cordova, 32, recently entered into a plea agreement in which he admits that he sold a fake Social Security card and fake state identification card as a "set" of documents to a law enforcement officer on April 2, 2007. He also admitted in court documents to having sold 15 more such sets between April 12 and Sept. 15 of last year. These variously included such things as Social Security cards, drivers' licenses, state identification cards and alien registration cards ("green cards.")
U. S. District Judge Dale Kimball has ordered a presentence report and set a sentencing date for Mejorada-Cordova for Oct. 21. He faces a possible sentence of 15 years in prison.
