A Florida man has been sentenced to time served by U.S. District Court Judge William M. Skretny for his role in providing false identification documents to illegal immigrants, U.S. Attorney William J. Hochul Jr. announced Wednesday.

Daniel Jimenez, 25, of Fort Myers, had served eight months in prison. He and his father, German Jimenez, 48, also of Fort Myers, pleaded guilty in September to a charge of transferring false IDs. The elder Jimenez is scheduled for sentencing Feb. 15.

Prosecutors said German Jimenez sold fake green cards (permanent resident cards), Social Security cards and driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants. They said his son helped mail them.
