ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) -- A former supervisor at an Arlington County motor vehicle office has pleaded guilty to accepting more than $11,000 in bribes.

Thirty-three-year-old Francisco Samayoa Hernandez of Silver Spring, Md., worked as a tax assessor supervisor at Arlington County's DMV Select, which the county operates under contract with the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles to provide services like registration and title processing.

At a plea hearing Tuesday in federal court in Alexandria, Samayoa admitted to accepting about $11,480 in bribes from a vehicle exporter to falsify DMV paperwork that allowed the exporter to avoid nearly $25,000 in registration and title fees on various luxury automobiles.

Court records show Samayoa received 15 separate bribe payments between July 2012 and November.
