Two metro Atlantans will go to federal prison for selling Georgia driver’s licenses in Marietta.

Jules Armand Che Siewe Achou, 33, of Atlanta, and Gbemisola Wellington-Salako, 36, of Marietta, were sentenced Wednesday by U.S. District Judge Orinda D. Evans for conspiring to issue Georgia driver’s licenses to people who did not qualify for them, but who were willing to pay up to $2,500 per license.

Siewe Achou was sentenced to 13 months in federal prison. As a citizen of Cameroon, Siewe Achou will face deportation proceedings after he serves his sentence.

Wellington-Salako was sentenced to 15 months in federal prison.

Siewe Achou and Wellington-Salako each pleaded guilty earlier this year to conspiring to produce and distribute false identification documents.

Around June 2007, Wellington-Salako was a driver’s license examiner in the DDS Customer Service Center on County Services Parkway in Marietta when she agreed to work with Siewe Achou to provide driver’s licenses to people who did not qualify for them, but who would pay up to $2,500 for a license.

Siewe Achou would find customers and send them to Wellington-Salako, who would issue them licenses without any tests or proof of legal residency in Georgia. Siewe Achou and Wellington-Salako later shared the money he collected from their customers. Eventually, Siewe Achou recruited other men to help him find customers for the conspiracy.

Between June 2007 and September 2009, the conspirators caused the DDS to issue up to 40 driver’s licenses.
