Ex J'can cop indicted

Chad Bryan, STAR Writer

A United States website, the Atlanta-Constitution, is reporting that a former Jamaican police officer who was in the United States illegally and who had managed to obtain citizenship and get a job in the College Park Police Department has been indicted.

According to www.ajc.com, Devon Campbell, 46, otherwise known as Wilmott Alvin Livingston, has been arraigned on a number of charges, which include making false statements on his citizenship and passport application.

The website continues that Campbell was indicted by a federal grand jury last Tuesday on one count each of unlawfully procuring citizenship or naturalisation, making false statements in a passport application, misusing evidence of citizenship, and using a passport secured by false statements.

Authorities say that when Campbell was applying for his Georgia Peace Officer Standards and Training certification, he "falsely claimed to be a naturalised United States citizen and submitted an unlawfully obtained Certificate of Naturalisation".

Authorities further stated that Campbell lived in Jamaica until November 2000, when he came to the United States using a passport bearing the name of Livingston and a false date of birth. He lived in the country, where he married, divorced, and married again and was granted citizenship under an assumed name, the post concludes.
