COLUMBIA, S.C. (FOX CAROLINA) A U.S. Attorney said Tuesday that six illegal aliens plead guilty to Social Security fraud in South Carolina.
U.S. Attorney Sherri Lydon announced that three Hondurans and three Guatemalans entered a guilty plea to one count of using a false Social Security number to get health insurance.
The Hondurans include: Luis Alberto Isaguirre-Cortes, Jose Santos Martinez, and Noe De La Cruz Galvez-Munugia.
Those from Guatemala are: Fredin Orlando Cordon-Gonzalez, Julio Cesar Rojas Vasquez, and Josue Eduardo Maas-Aparicio.

Each defendant faces a possible sentence of up to five years in prison.
Sentencing will happen after a Presentence Report is prepared by the U.S. Probation Office.
