ATHENS, Ga.- The masterminds of a fake ID manufacturing and distribution ring have been ordered to serve jail time, participate in community service and pay a $5,000 fine.

University of Georgia Student William Trosclair and former Gainesville State University student Tyler Andrew Ruby pleaded guilty last week to manufacturing false identification documents and manufacturing and distributing documents containing unauthorized government seals.

Investigators have said they used couriers to take customers' photos in dorm rooms, collected personal information for the IDs and delivered the products for between $50 and $100.

The two must serve between 60 and 120 days in detention and five years of probation.

Twenty-one people, including students from Northwestern University, the University of Alabama and the University of Mississippi, were also indicted in the case.
