ALBUQUERQUE – Clinton William Yetter, 51, of Gainesville, Fla., was sentenced today in Albuquerque, N.M, federal court to 48 months in prison followed by two years of supervised release for his conviction on false statements and aggravated identity theft charges.

Yetter was charged in a four-count indictment filed on May 29, 2013, with two counts of making false statements and two counts of identity fraud.  The indictment alleged that Yetter made the false statements on Oct. 4, 2011 and May 2, 2012, in Bernalillo County, N.M., when applying for U.S. passports.  It also alleged that Yetter used the name of another person in making the applications.

This case was investigated by the U.S. Department of State, Diplomatic Security Service and was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Paul Mysliwiec.
