Gerardo Rojas was a middleman in getting bogus docs to illegals who wanted jobs here.
A Nebraska City man has pleaded guilty to his role in trafficking fake identity documents like birth certificates and Social Security cards.
Gerardo Rangel Rojas, also known as Ivan Lara Rojas, has pleaded guilty to conspiracy to possess, produce and transfer false identification documents. The 25-year-old Rojas faces up to 15 years in prison when he's sentenced Sept. 17.
On Friday, Rojas admitted in Lincoln's U.S. District Court that he sent money to Puerto Rico in exchange for birth certificates and Social Security cards sent to him in Nebraska. Assistant U.S. Attorney William Mickle said more than 100 fake documents were involved in the case.
Rojas said he would pass the documents on to others who wanted them so they could work.
