Nevada Man Sentenced to Two Years in Prison for Aggravated Identity Theft
SACRAMENTO, CA—Glenn Litton, 47, resident of Carson City, Nevada, was sentenced today by United States District Judge Morrison C. England Jr. to two years in prison for aggravated identity theft, United States Attorney Benjamin B. Wagner announced.
According to court documents, on November 19, 2014, Litton submitted an application for a U.S. passport to a passport acceptance officer in Sacramento. In the application, Litton used the identity of another individual, including that individual’s name, birthdate, and Social Security number. Litton also presented supporting documentation such as a birth certificate, a debit card, and employment ID card bearing the name of the individual whose identity he had assumed. As a result of the application, Litton was issued a U.S. passport in a false name.
This case was the product of an investigation by the U.S. State Department’s Diplomatic Security Service with assistance from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), and the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles. Assistant United States Attorney Shelley D. Weger prosecuted the case.
