Nevada man pleads guilty to using another person’s identity to obtain passport

A man from Carson City, Nev., accused of making false statements in an application for a United States passport has pleaded guilty to aggravated identity theft.

Glenn Litton, 47, entered the plea Thursday in federal court in Sacramento, according to a U.S. Attorney’s Office news release.

Court documents indicate that on Nov. 19, 2014, Litton submitted an application for a U.S. passport to a passport acceptance officer in Sacramento. In the application Litton made a number of false statements, including a false name, birth date and Social Security number that belonged to a another person. Litton also presented a birth certificate, debit card and employee ID card, all bearing the false name that he used in the passport application.

As a result of the application, Litton was issued a U.S. passport in a false name, authorities said.

Litton is in Sacramento County Jail awaiting sentencing. He is to be sentenced Nov. 12 by U.S. District Judge Morrison C. England Jr.

The case resulted from an investigation by the U.S. State Department’s Diplomatic Security Service, with assistance from the FBI, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations and the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles.
