Attorney General Brown announces charges against three individuals involved in an identity fraud operation at the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration

These charges arise from an alleged fraudulent scheme where Watson, Marshall, and Smith purportedly deceived the MVA's system designed to issue driving credentials to qualified individuals.


Attorney General Anthony G. Brown today announced indictments against Erica Danielle Watson, 29, of Brooklyn, Maryland; Larry Antonio Marshall, 54; and Shanice Tiera Smith, 34, all from Baltimore.


They are accused of participating in an identity fraud operation at a Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA) branch in Baltimore City. Watson, Marshall, and Smith face charges of engaging in an identity fraud scheme and conspiring to commit an identity fraud scheme valued between $25,000 and $100,000. Marshall and Watson additionally face charges of bribing and conspiring to bribe a public employee. Smith, a former MVA employee, is charged with accepting bribes and misconduct in office.


“State employees have a responsibility to use their position to protect our residents, not to engage in conduct that puts others at risk of financial or personal harm,” said Attorney General Brown.” Our Office will hold accountable any state employee who abuses their position for personal gain.”


These charges arise from an alleged fraudulent scheme where Watson, Marshall, and Smith purportedly deceived the MVA's system designed to issue driving credentials to qualified individuals. During the spring of 2022, Marshall worked as a contract custodian and Smith as a customer agent at the MVA branch on Reisterstown Road in Baltimore City.


According to allegations, the scheme began with Watson promoting on Instagram the issuance of MVA credentials such as drivers' licenses and learners' permits for $600 each. Smith and Watson reportedly accepted payments from MVA applicants for learners' permits and drivers' licenses.


They allegedly orchestrated a plan where Watson assumed the identities of at least 66 MVA applicants to take the written portion of their drivers' tests on their behalf. Smith, responsible for administering the knowledge tests as a customer agent, allegedly allowed Watson to take these tests for applicants who were not physically present. It is alleged that Watson and Marshall used part of the funds collected from MVA applicants to bribe Smith for her assistance in this scheme.


The defendants' cases will be adjudicated in Baltimore City Circuit Court.


An indictment is an accusation of wrongdoing, and all defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty by the state beyond a reasonable doubt.
