(KSL News) A Logan woman has pleaded guilty for selling birth certificates and Social Security cards to undocumented workers. Veronica Carrillo was arrested the same day 150 other illegal immigrants in Utah and a thousand more nationally were arrested at Swift & Company meat plants in December.
The 42-year-old Mexican national could face up to 10 years in prison for selling the citizenship papers and up to two years for identity theft.
After serving her time she'll be deported.
Carrillo once told an informant that she had sold more than 300 U.S. birth certificates.
