Taunton woman pleads guilty to giving licenses to people who didn’t take road tests
BOSTON (WLNE) — A Taunton woman pleaded guilty Monday to bribing a road test examiner at the RMV in Brockton to issue driver’s licenses to people who didn’t take road tests.
According to court documents, 56-year-old Neta Centio pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit honest services mail fraud.
Officials said Centio paid a road test examiner at the Brockton RMV service center to falsely document that certain license applicants had passed their road test, when really, they hadn’t even shown up for the test.
Centio used CashApp to pay the examiner in exchange for fraudulent passing scores on road tests. After her fraud was discovered, Centio can be quoted telling the examiner, “Don’t say nothing about the CashApp — Break the phone.”
The charge of conspiracy to commit honest services mail fraud provides for a sentence of up to 20 years in prison, three years of supervised release and a $250,000 fine.
Centio is scheduled to be sentenced on November 20, 2023.
