KANSAS CITY, Kan. – (July 18, 2019) – A Kansas City man was found guilty of an unlawful act relating to the use of an identification card, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said.
Lorenzo Delgado Garcia, 41, pleaded no contest yesterday in Wyandotte County District Court to one felony count of an unlawful act relating to the use of an identification card. The case stemmed from an investigation by the Office of Special Investigations of the Kansas Department of Revenue, which revealed that in February Garcia applied for a photo identification card using a false name.
This is the 11th conviction resulting from an agreement announced in March 2018 between the attorney general’s office and the Department of Revenue. Under the agreement, the attorney general’s office, in cooperation with local prosecutors, assumed responsibility for the prosecution of cases of tax fraud and related crimes investigated by the Department of Revenue in efforts to strengthen the state’s enforcement efforts for these types of crimes.
Magistrate Judge Martinez took the plea. Sentencing has been set for September 5 at 3 p.m. in Division 15.
The case is being prosecuted by Assistant Attorney General Jon Noble of Schmidt’s office.
