Michelle Carbajal, Dirty DMV Worker, Gets 4 Years Split Between Jail and Supervision
Working through a third party authorities have yet to identify, the Fullerton 38-year-old unlawfully altered tests and records for 14 people who'd ponied up a total of more than $24,000, although it's unclear how much went to her and how much the headhunter received. A DMV supervisor became suspicious of her, which resulted in her arrest on Aug. 19, 2011.

According to a statement today from the Orange County District Attorney's office (OCDA), "Carbajal's actions endangered public safety, as some of these tests were safety-related including proper use of specialized brakes, proper pulling of double trailers, the ability to drive semi-trucks and other commercial vehicles, among other skills. None of the 14 individuals had passed any of the tests."
