Rochester Man Sentenced for Passport Fraud


ROCHESTER, N.Y.—U.S. Attorney William J. Hochul, Jr. announced today that Leroy Malcolm, 45, of Rochester, NY, who was convicted of passport application fraud, was sentenced to two years of probation by U.S. District Judge Charles J. Siragusa.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Tiffany H. Lee, who is handling the case, stated that in July 2004, Malcolm, a Jamaican national, submitted a United States passport application to the Rochester City Clerk’s Office. The defendant used his own picture but the name, date of birth, and place of birth of another individual.

The sentencing is the culmination of an investigation on the part of the United States Department of State, Diplomatic Security Service, under the direction of William Ferrari.
