A College Park police officer has been sentenced to serve 10 months in prison on immigration fraud charges.
Prosecutors say Devon Campbell is a former Jamaican police officer who entered the U.S. illegally and became a citizen. The 46-year-old defendant pleaded guilty in April and was sentenced Tuesday.
Prosecutors say Campbell came to the U.S. in 2001 using a Jamaican passport bearing the made-up name Wilmott Alvin Livingston and a false date of birth. Prosecutors say Campbell lived under that name and married a U.S. citizen. He became a lawful permanent resident in 2004 and became a citizen in 2008.
He used his false name and unlawfully obtained certificate of naturalization to get his police certification to be a College Park police officer.
