Sentencing has been deferred for a St. James man who reportedly tried to procure a new passport by making a false statement on a passport application form.
Forty-seven-year-old Lindel Smith of Flanker in the parish was scheduled to be sentenced in the St. James Parish Court on Friday. However, when presiding judge Sandria Wong-Small announced the sentence, which was a $150,000 fine, Smith told the court that he did not have sufficient funds and requested additional time.
The judge at that point deferred sentencing until June 7 and bind over the accused man.
It is alleged that on March 3, 2007, Smith went to the Passport Immigration and Citizenship Agency (PICA) in Montego Bay and knowingly made a false declaration for the purpose of acquiring a passport in the name Lucius Smith, knowing same to be false.
It also came to light that Smith had travelled on the passport.
