DMV worker allegedly takes bribes for permits

SANTA ANA, Calif.

Prosecutors say Michelle Carbajal, 37, Fullerton, accepted $23,000 from 12 different people to alter their records showing they passed the written and driving tests. She then issued them permits.

The permits included qualifying them to drive big-rigs and other commercial vehicles.

Carbajal faces up to 22 years in prison if she's convicted.
