FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
April 11, 2012

 

A grand jury returned an indictment charging Obrain Kadian Williams, aka Deon Josiah Isidore, 30, with one count of false claim of U.S. citizenship and one count of false statement in application for a passport, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.

The indictment alleges that Williams is a citizen of Jamaica and an alien who falsely and willfully represented himself to be a citizen of the United States.

The indictment further alleges that on or about June 30, 2010, Williams knowingly and willfully made false statements in his passport application stating that a) he was a citizen of the United States; b) his name was Deon Josiah Isidore; and c) his date of birth was a date in 1988 other than his actual birth date, all statements which he knew to be false.

If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the Court after review of factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violation. In all cases, the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases it will be less than the maximum.

The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Matthew B. Kall, following investigation by agents of the U.S. Department of State Diplomatic Security Service.
