  • ATLANTA (AP) — A former Department of Driver Services employee has pleaded guilty to making fake identification cards.

    Lauren Kane, spokeswoman for the state Attorney General, says former DDS employee Frederick Lawson pleaded guilty Monday in DeKalb County Superior Court to six counts of bribery and six counts of false statements for allegedly supplying a woman with fake identification cards.

    Authorities say Lawson may have started making fake identification cards in 2008 and gave them to Lamondi Benton, who has also pleaded guilty to two counts of making false statements. Lawson told investigators Benton paid him to make the fraudulent identification cards.

    Lawson and Benton have both been sentenced to a year in prison and five years on probation. Lawson is ordered to pay $3,000 and Benton is ordered to pay $1,000.
