Eduardo Morgado, 30, was sentenced to three years of probation Wednesday for using a false identity in an attempt to acquire a United States passport.
As part of the plea bargain, Morgado agreed he will not contest his deportation to Mexico.
David B. Fein, U.S. Attorney for the District of Connecticut, said Morgado applied on August 21, 2010, for a U.S. passport at the Backus Avenue Post Office. On the application, Morgado used the name, date of birth and social security number of a U.S. citizen. Morgado also presented a Connecticut driver's license with his photograph along with the name of a U.S. citizen, plus a birth certificate of a U.S. citizen. The investigation revealed Morgado entered the U.S. illegally and settled in Connecticut. In 2009, Morgado used the identity of a U.S. citizen to obtain a Connecticut driver's license.
On June 22, 2012, MORGADO pleaded guilty to one count of making a false statement in an application for a passport.
