Martinsburg, Berkeley County , West Virginia
A former Division of Motor Vehicles worker from Martinsburg is facing federal charges for allegedly trading drivers' licenses for cash.
In an indictment unsealed Monday after his arrest, 60-year-old Kermit Miller was charged with 19 counts of fraud. Federal prosecutors claim Miller accepted an undisclosed amount of cash from 18 different people in exchange for a driver's license. Those who received the licenses were not required to submit applications or pass tests.
On Monday, a public defender was appointed to represent Miller. He did not immediately return a telephone message seeking comment.
Miller will be arraigned next Monday.
If convicted, he faces up to 15 years in prison on the conspiracy count and up to 5 years in prison on each of the fraud charges.
