Anchorage Man Indicted by Federal Grand Jury for Unlawful Production of False Identification Documents
ANCHORAGE, AK—U.S. Attorney Karen L. Loeffler announced today that David Wayne Henry was indicted by a federal grand jury in Anchorage for unlawful production of false identification documents which appeared to be issued under the authority of the United States.
Henry, 41, of Kenai, Alaska, is the sole defendant named in the one-count indictment, together with one forfeiture allegation.
According to the indictment, Henry illegally produced numerous false identification documents which appeared to be issued by federal agencies. The fake IDs reflected Henry’s photo, but the names and personnel identifiers of other individuals. Some of the fake IDs were also in Henry’s own name. They consisted of ID cards for the FBI, the CIA, the Department of Defense, the U.S. Marine Corps, and the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Yvonne Lamoureux, who presented the case to the grand jury, indicated that the law provides for a maximum total sentence of up to 15 years in prison, a fine of up to $250,000, or both. In addition, the forfeiture allegation seeks forfeiture of the following property: 30 common access cards with microchips, 500 common access cards without microchips, hologram stickers, notary seals, laminating materials, printers, laminator, and electronic media. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed will be based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.
“Creating false identification documents is a serious crime all by itself, but making false law enforcement and official government identifications raises the potential for harm to another level” said Kevin R. Feldis, First Assistant U.S. Attorney and Criminal Division Chief for the District of Alaska. “The FBI responded quickly to seize the fake ID cards and will continue to investigate this case.”
The FBI conducted the investigation leading to the indictment in this case.
An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. A defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial at which the government must prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
