St. John Man Sentenced to 17 Months in Prison for Bank Fraud

ST. THOMAS, US—District Court Judge Curtis V. Gomez today sentenced Davidson L. Alfred, 54, of St. John, to 17 months in prison and two years of supervised release for bank fraud, United States Attorney Ronald W. Sharpe announced. Judge Gomez ordered Alfred to serve his sentence consecutively to a 16-month sentence he received on January 29, 2015, for violating the conditions of his supervised release in another criminal case, United States v. Alfred, Criminal No. 12-cr-36. At the conclusion of Thursday’s sentencing hearing, Alfred was remanded to the custody of the United States Marshals Service to begin serving his sentence.

Court records show that Alfred pleaded guilty to count one of an indictment, which charged him with presenting for payment a forged check to Banco Popular de Puerto Rico in the amount of $2,500. As part of his guilty plea, Alfred also admitted that he presented additional forged checks drawn on the same account, totaling approximately $44,450.00.

The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Kim L. Chisholm.
