A supervisor at a California Department of Motor Vehicles office is facing a bribery conspiracy charge in connection with a scheme to sell driver's licenses to people who failed required tests.
Federal prosecutors said Monday that 36-year-old Jesse Mario Bryan supervised DMV employees who falsely entered passing test scores for applicants in exchange for bribes ranging from $75 to $600 per license.
Bryan is among more than two dozen people arrested as part of the bribery scam. Four other DMV employees also have been charged.
Authorities have said some applicants were unfit to drive. In one instance, an applicant got a license after stopping at a green light and driving on the wrong side of the road four times during her test.
