Irish Citizen Sentenced on Misuse of Social Security Number

BOSTON – Francis J. Moloney, 43, of Marlborough, was sentenced yesterday by U.S. District Court Denise J. Casper to 12 months probation, with the first three months of that period in home confinement, as well as 80 hours of community service.  In February, 2016, Moloney pleaded guilty to misuse of a social security number. 

On March 20, 2013, Moloney, an Irish citizen living in Massachusetts, fraudulently obtained a driver’s license using the identity and social security number of an Irish national and former permanent legal resident, after that person renounced his legal status in the United States and returned to Ireland.
