Mexican national pleads guilty in phony ID scheme


NASHVILLE (AP) - A Mexican national has pleaded guilty to document fraud in the making of phony IDs.

Federal prosecutors in Nashville say that 27-year-old Mario Bravo Romualdo admitted Friday to possessing equipment that would help him make the fake identification, including Green Cards and Social Security cards.

Prosecutors say he had blank cards bearing the seal of the United States Department of Justice and cards with names and emblems of various states.

Romualdo was arrested in October while attempting to sell fake documents. Three others were charged with him and their cases are pending.

He will be sentenced in July. He faces up to 15 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.
