Lucio Medina-Sanchez, 37, was sentenced today in Monmouth County Superior Court. He was arrested in February 2012 after selling bogus green permanent-resident cards and social security cards to an undercover investigator.

Authorities say Medina-Sanchez required people to give him passport-sized photos and a name and birthdate of their choice along with payment for the documents.

Investigators armed with a search warrant seized computers, laminates, and other manufacturing materials when they raided his dwelling.

His sentencing applies to his guilty plea for three second-degree charges: one of manufacturing false government identification and two of selling false government identification.
