Seven sentenced for ID theft

ORANGE CITY (KWWL) -- Sioux County Attorney Coleman McAllister says authorities have sentenced seven people -- five from Guatemala, one from Mexico, and one from Nicaragua -- for identity theft and/or possessing fraudulent documents.

All of the seven drew suspended sentences on some charges, and most received short jail terms on other counts.

The Guatemalans sentenced Monday were 36-year-old Raul Niz-Lopez, 43-year-old Jose Sebastian-Bartolon, 39-year-old Nicolasa Lopez-Ramos, 2-year-old Enrique Fermin Chilel-Sebastian, and 18-year-old Javier Lopez-Ramos.

The Mexican native sentenced was 35-year-old Maximiliano Perez, while the Nicaraguan was 42-year-old Henry Araica.

The US Immigration and Customs Enforcement has placed a hold on each of the seven, and, upon the expiration of their jail terms, it will begin deportation proceedings against them.
