BOSTON (AP) - A former clerk for the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles is headed to prison for her role in an identity theft scheme.

The U.S. Justice Department says 37-year-old Annette Gracia, of Boston, was sentenced to a year in prison after pleading guilty to one count of illegally producing an identification document.

Prosecutors say Gracia was one of four clerks at a Boston RMV location who helped issue identification cards to people who were in the country illegally in exchange for cash.

Authorities say the ID cards were created using identities stolen from U.S. citizens living in Puerto Rico with the help of a Boston man and women.

All six people involved in the scheme have pleaded guilty. Gracia was sentenced to a year of supervised release after her prison sentence.
