Fraud victim reclaims identity

April 8, 2004

Thomas County - Last week we told you about Wayne Jenkins, a man fighting to regain his identity. He couldn't get his driver's license renewed because someone got a DUI in his name.

After WALB News 10 contacted the Department of Motor Vehicles, they cleared Wayne Jenkins' name, and gave him back his driver's license.

Jenkins says, "It is so wonderful. I can go to town, drive down the road, and not have to sweat. I was sweating there for a long time, 'cause I knew if I ever got stopped I was going to jail, even though it wasn't my fault. I was still going to jail."

Jenkins is no longer worried about going to jail, and is thankful that after 15 months, he finally has his identity back.
