Guilty Plea In Case of Stolen Child's Identity

Guilty Plea In Case of Stolen Child's Identity

A Mexican national is looking at jail time after pleading guilty to stealing the identity of a deceased child.

Rafael Zarate entered his plea in federal court in Sacramento.

In 2012 he applied for a passport using the name of a real person who was born in California in 1949, but died in 1953.

He also used that person's identity to receive Social Security benefits.
