Betina Young (pictured), a former license agency clerk with the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV), was sentenced to five years probation and a $3,000 fine for her role in providing fraudulent driver’s licenses to undocumented foreign nationals, according to NBC News.
The judge also added a quirky punishment: a three-day jail sentence during five Christmases to come. The sentence, known as ”Holbrook Holidays,” is a popular move made famous by Franklin County Court Judge, Michael Holbrook. The unusual punishment is suppose to give individuals time to think about the crimes they’ve committed during a holiday treasured by many.
In April of last year, Young and co-conspirator, Sekou Kpoto, were indicted on five felony counts of records tampering. Court records indicate that Kpoko was the go-between man who accepted bribes from those seeking either driver’s licenses or state identifications.
