A Caldwell woman has been sentenced to two years in prison for attempting to apply for a passport with the ID of a United States citizen.
"Lilliana Ruiz-Dominguez, a/k/a Araceli Ramos, 54, a native of Mexico and former resident of Caldwell, Idaho, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Edward J. Lodge to 24 months in prison for aggravated identity theft," according to Pamela Bearg with the U.S. Attorney's Office.
