Driver licensing fraud investigation could net more arrests

More people could face prosecution for driver licensing fraud in addition to the two people who have already pleaded guilty, according to federal court records.

Paige Teruya, 47, a driver licensing clerk at the city’s satellite city hall on Dillingham Boulevard in Kapalama, pleaded guilty in federal court Thursday to one count of fraud for producing a Hawaii driver’s license for an illegal alien who had not taken or passed a written or driving test nor presented valid identification documents.

The city said Teruya remains an employee but cannot comment further about her status because of a pending personnel matter.

Teruya said she has been a licensing clerk for five years.
