(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) Two more men have been sentenced for their role in an ID fraud case through the St. Joseph license office.

Domingo Ajanel-Castro, 34, was sentenced to four years in prison without parole after pleading guilty to his role in the production and sale of false or fraudulently produced IDs.

Hector Juarez Mendoza Sr., 55, was sentenced to three years and six months in federal prison, without parole. Juarez is a citizen of Mexico but is a lawful, permanent resident of the U.S.

Ajanel-Castro is a citizen of Guatemala who was illegally living in St. Joseph.

Illegal aliens traveled across the U.S. to get licenses at the St. Joseph office by using unlawfully obtained birth certificates and Social Security cards. It's estimated that more than 100 Missouri licenses were unlawfully issued to illegal aliens as part of the scheme between 2010 and 2012.
