Epsom Man Pleads Guilty To Misusing Another’s Social Security Number

            CONCORD, N.H. – Gordon Daigle a/k/a Gordon Hill, 38, of Epsom, pleaded guilty today in the United States District Court for the District of New Hampshire to one count of Social Security Number Misuse, announced United States Attorney Emily Gray Rice.

            According to statements made in Court, on April 6, 2015, Daigle applied for a New Hampshire Non-Driver Identification Card using another person’s name, date of birth, and Social Security number.  He produced a Social Security card and a birth certificate in the other person’s name with his application to the Department of Motor Vehicles as means of identification.  On May 23, 2016, Daigle was apprehended by the New Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force as a result of warrants issued by the Wyoming Board of Parole and the New Hampshire Department of Corrections Parole Board for parole violations.  When he was taken into custody, he was in possession of the New Hampshire Non-Driver Identification Card issued in the other person’s name, but bearing his picture, and the matching Social Security card.

            Daigle is scheduled to be sentenced on February 1, 2017.

            The case was investigated by the Social Security Administration’s Office of the Inspector General and the United States Marshal’s Service.  It is being prosecuted by Special Assistant United States Attorney Karen Burzycki.
