A Massachusetts man has been sentenced to 15 months in prison for making a false statement on his passport application and aggravated identity theft.

Juan Santana, 42, of Lowell, Massachusetts, was also ordered by U.S. District Court Judge Jon D. Levy to serve three years of supervised release.

According to court records, in October 2016, Santana, a citizen of the Dominican Republic, submitted a U.S. passport application falsely identifying himself as another person. He presented a birth certificate and Maine driver’s license in the other person’s name. When he was arrested a year later, he had a Maine driver’s license, a social security card and debit card in the other person’s name.
