Ex-cop gets 10 months in the US

A former Jamaican policeman has been sentenced in the United States to 10 months in federal prison after pleading guilty to immigration fraud.

Devon Campbell, 46, of Ellenwood, also known as Wilmott Alvin Livingston, is reported to have worked as a police officer in Jamaica before illegally entering the US and unlawfully becoming a US citizen.

According to a report on www.ajc.com, the accused man worked as a College Park police.

Campbell pleaded guilty on April 8 to one count of unlawfully procuring citizenship or naturalisation and one count of using a passport secured by false statements.

It is reported that Campbell went to the US in November 2000 with a fake passport bearing the name Wilmott Alvin Livingston and a false birthday.

He lived using the false name and in 2001 married a US citizen, after which he sought to become a lawful permanent resident.

His application, applied for under the false name Livingston, was granted in August 2004, and in October 2007, he applied for naturalisation, failing to list any other aliases, a request that was granted in 2008.

As part of his conviction, Campbell's citizenship has been revoked and he will be deported after his prison sentence concludes.
