Two defendants in an identity theft case involving more than 1,000 victims and $8.8 million in falsified state unemployment insurance claims pleaded guilty Monday in federal court.

Antonio Mandujano Espino and his wife, Rosa Mandujano, of San Joaquin, admitted to multiple counts of fraud and money laundering, and agreed to forfeit two houses.

The couple got employer payroll lists, including names and Social Security numbers, which they used to collect unemployment checks, prosecutors said.
