ILLEGAL DOCUMENT VENDOR SENTENCED
RALEIGH - United States Attorney George E. B. Holding announced that in federal court today United States District Judge Terrence W. Boyle sentenced JACEK ROBERT KEMP, also known as JACEK CEBULSKI, a Polish immigrant illegally residing in New Britain, Connecticut, to two years imprisonment. He will be processed for deportation by the United States Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement following service of his sentence. A Federal Grand Jury indicted KEMP on December 20, 2006, charging him with conspiracy, fraudulently altering a United States visa, transporting an alien interstate for commercial gain to violate the law, making false statements to federal investigators and other visa fraud in a five-count indictment. KEMP entered a guilty plea to a three-count Criminal Information pursuant to a plea agreement on April 17, 2007, admitting to engaging in a conspiracy to offer his services as an illegal document vendor for commercial gain for fraudulent official documents, to include United States entry visas and social security cards. As part of his criminal conspiracy, KEMP would transport other illegal aliens across state lines to obtain fraudulent official documents such as state driver's licenses. KEMP was initially arrested on November 28, 2006 outside a Raleigh office of the North Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles while helping a co-defendant attempt to obtain a North Carolina Driver’s License using a fraudulent United States entry visa. Immediate detection of the fraud by Officers of the North Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles and subsequent notification to an Agent of the Department of State Diplomatic Security Service resulted in the apprehension.
Investigation of the case was conducted by the Department of State Diplomatic Security Service, the United States Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and the North Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles. Assistant United States Attorney David L. Hayden prosecuted the case for the government.
