    Damanpreet Singh, who pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit bribery, also received 36 months’ supervised release and a $100 special assessment fee when he was sentenced last month.
   According to the Department of Transportation Office of the Inspector General (DOT-OIG), Damanpreet conspired with two California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) employees. In exchange for bribe payments, the pair altered DMV records to fraudulently show that individuals had passed tests they needed to obtain CDLs. However, the applicants had not taken or passed the tests.
   At least 60 DMV records were fraudulently updated, according to DOT-OIG. For his role in the conspiracy, Damanpreet received approximately $90,000, some of which he paid to the corrupt DMV employees.
   DOT-OIG conducted the investigation with the FBI, Department of Homeland Security and California DMV.
