Jose Alberto Carrillo, 47, helped a motorist on May 10, 2012, who failed the written test get an interim license in exchange for $100, according to Senior Deputy District Attorney Brock Zimmon.
On June 4, 2012, Carrillo doctored records after business hours to indicate an immigrant in the country without legal permission was a citizen in exchange for $500, Zimmon alleged.
The alleged bribery scheme came to light when one of the motorists did not receive a permanent driver’s license as promised, Zimmon said.
Carrillo was charged with two counts each of altering public documents and computer access and fraud, all felonies, Zimmon said.
Carrillo was arrested at his home in Fresno. He was released after posting $20,000 bail. He was scheduled to be arraigned April 20. He could face up to five years in jail if convicted at trial.
