WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Canadian citizen who used his dead brother’s identity to enter the U.S. unlawfully has been sentenced to four years in federal prison.
U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom says 58-year-old Leslie Lyle Camick also was ordered Monday to pay restitution of more than $15,000 to a former business partner.
A Kansas jury found Camick guilty in January of aggravated identity theft, obstruction of justice, mail fraud and wire fraud.
Prosecutors say Camick started using the identity of his brother, Wayne Bradly Camick, starting in 1997. Wayne Camick died as an infant in 1958.
He used that name to remain in the U.S. for at least 10 years, obtain a Canadian Social Insurance card and driver’s license in the Caymen Islands, and sign documents to purchase real estate in Winfield, Kan.
