New York Man Sentenced For Passport Fraud

          CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE United States Attorney Emily Gray Rice announced today that Jeffrey Slamow, of Lynbrook, NY, was sentenced to three years’ probation after pleading guilty to a one-count Indictment alleging that he filed a false affidavit in connection with the fraudulent passport application of another individual.

          On June 22, 2011 Slamow intentionally filed a false Sworn Affidavit of Identifying Witness (U.S. State Department form DS-71) supporting the fraudulent passport application of a friend. Slamow’s friend was not a citizen or national of the United States and could not obtain a passport in his own identity.  The friend submitted a passport application using the identity information of another person known to Slamow.  The Sworn Affidavit of Identifying Witness that was executed by Slamow was false because Slamow knew the applicant was not a citizen of the United States and knew the applicant’s true name was not that listed on the application.   

          Slamow pled guilty to the charge on November 4, 2015.

          The case was investigated by the U.S. State Department Diplomatic Security Service.  This case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Alfred Rubega.
