(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The final suspect accused in a scheme that helped more than 100 illegal immigrants get a fake driver's license through the St. Joseph License Office has been sentenced.

Pedro Pablo-Solis, 29, was sentenced to two years in federal prison without parole for aggravated identity theft.

Pablo-Solis is a citizen of Guatemala living in Liberal, Kansas.

According to federal prosecutors, Pablo-Solis obtained genuine Social Security cards and birth certificates that were later used by illegal immigrants to get a Missouri driver's license or identification card.

It's estimated that more than 100 Missouri licenses were unlawfully issued to illegal immigrants between July 1, 2010 and January 10, 2012 from the St. Joseph License Office.
