Hollywood DMV Employee Gets Prison for Bribery, Fraud
By Sentinel News Wire
Published August 26, 2019

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A former California Department of Motor Vehicles employee has been sentenced to nearly two years in federal prison for taking money in exchange for altering DMV database records.

The Sacramento Bee reports Saturday that 51-year-old Aaron Gilliam had pleaded guilty to three conspiracy charges — to commit bribery, identity fraud and unauthorized access of a computer.

Gilliam worked at the Hollywood DMV for more than a decade. Investigators said he took money in exchange for altering DMV records to reflect that individuals received a passing score on written examinations.


A federal investigation found Gilliam responsible for dozens of fraudulent licenses and permits being issued.
