ATLANTA (AP) - Four former driver's license examiners are among
six people accused of a scheme to issue licenses to illegal
immigrants in exchange for thousands of dollars.

The U.S. Attorney's Office said Thursday that a federal grand
jury charged 33-year-old Shijuanna V. Cobb of Ellenwood,
31-year-old Rickell M. Patterson of Covington, 38-year-old Angela
R. Read of Lithonia and 23-year-old Chardye M. Lloyd of Conyers
with conspiracy to commit identify fraud.

Officials say they issued 136 illegal licenses from the state
Department of Driver Services in Lithonia.

Also indicted were 48-year-old Satishkumar B. Patel of Nashville, Tenn., and Harikrishna A. Patel of Snellville, a 26-year-old accused of charging immigrants $7,000 to $8,000 for licenses.
