GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - Prosecutors say a Louisiana man has been sentenced to 13 months in prison after selling counterfeit immigration papers to illegal immigrants in southern Mississippi.

The Sun Herald (https://bit.ly/1KyTma6 ) reports 27-year-old Pedro Alberto Perez Perez pleaded guilty to a charge of possession of counterfeit documents April 21 in Gulfport. Court records show Perez Perez met with customers who wanted to buy a car stereo, a code he used with clients seeking false documents. He agreed to make counterfeit documents for confidential informants several times, selling them for $250 apiece.

An investigation began in May 2013 and authorities tracked the sales of the IDs to informants last year.

Perez Perez was taken into custody in Hammond in November.
