By BBN Staff: Belizean Rickon Wade aka “Rick Wade,” 35, was convicted in Nevada for using a fraudulent United States Permanent Resident Card and a fake Social Security card (listing a Social Security number not assigned to him) while applying for a “Real ID” identification card at a Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles office in Henderson.
Wade was found guilty of one count of Fraud and Misuse of Visas, Permits, and Documents, and one count of Misuse of a Social Security Number.
According to the Department of Justice, the investigation revealed that Wade traveled from Belize to Mexico and entered the United States at a Texas Port of Entry in January 2000, as a temporary visitor for pleasure or tourism.
He was permitted to stay in the US until July 2000 and since he didn’t have a pending application with U.S. Customs and Immigration Services to remain in the United States after July 2000, his continued stay was unlawful.
He faces a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison, supervised release, and a monetary fine.
A sentencing hearing has been scheduled for July 16, 2021, before U.S. District Judge Gloria M. Navarro.
