Judge sentences man arrested in Tupper Lake

MALONE — A Mexican native was sentenced to state prison after a Franklin County jury convicted him of using someone else’s identification.

Francisco Carbajal, 36, who was most recently living in Lowville in Lewis County, was convicted of two counts of second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument during a February trial.

He was sentenced to 2 1/3 to seven years in prison recently by County Court Judge Robert G. Main Jr.

A Tupper Lake Village Police Department patrol pulled him over for failing to signal on Jan. 8, 2013, and found him with a Social Security card and permanent-resident card that belonged to someone else.

He also had $15,000 in cash on him.
