On August 15, Francisco Palacios, a/k/a Fredy Molina, a former driver for Covitta, Inc. (Covitta), a trucking company in Lorton, VA, pled guilty to presenting a counterfeit CDL to a law enforcement officer. Palacios, an illegal alien, was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Alexandria, VA to 10 weeks time served in prison and will be deported.
