Jamaica News, April 6, 2018 – Suspended Sentence for Fake Passport
Montego Bay, Jamaica (McKoy’s News) – After using fraudulent documents to apply for a Jamaican passport, Joel Brown now has a suspended sentence hanging over his head.
Brown, 53, who had previously pleaded guilty to making a false declaration, appeared in the St. James Parish Court on Friday.
Court files state that on November 2, 2001, Brown visited the passport office in Montego Bay and applied for a passport in the name Donovan Glenroy Allen, which resulted in him being charged.
It also came to light that Brown was previously convicted in the United States for importing cocaine into the country and was sentenced to a five-year prison term.
In handing down sentence on Friday, Parish Judge Sandria Wong-Small imposed a 12-month prison term but suspended the sentence for two years.
