MIAMI – On May 15, a federal jury convicted Alfred Lenoris Davis, 50, of Miami, Florida, of use of a counterfeit access device to facilitate a South Florida identity concealment scheme.

Davis, a previously convicted felon, utilized a counterfeit access device, more specifically a fraudulent Florida driver’s license as proof of identity to become an occupant of, and gain access to, a luxury condominium in Sunny Isles, Florida. Due to the concealment of his true identity, Davis’s criminal history was not made known to the condominium’s board members when they assessed his qualifications.  Relying on the counterfeit access device, the building allowed Davis full access to amenities and services afforded to residents.

A sentencing hearing is scheduled for July 11 before U.S. District Judge Jose E. Martinez. Davis faces up to 10 years in prison. The federal district court judge will determine any sentence after considering the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

U.S. Attorney Markenzy Lapointe for the Southern District of Florida and Special Agent in Charge Jeffrey B. Veltri of the FBI, Miami Field Office, made the announcement.

FBI Miami investigated the case. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Jonathan Bailyn and Katie L. Sadlo prosecuted the case. Assistant U.S. Attorney Mitchell Hyman is handling asset forfeiture.
