Devon Campbell of Ellenwood pleaded guilty in April to one count of unlawfully procuring citizenship or naturalization and one count of using a passport secured by false statements. His U.S. citizenship has been revoked and he will face deportation after completing his prison sentence.
In 2000, the Jamaican native entered the U.S., using a Jamaican passport with a false name and date of birth, federal prosecutors said. He married a U.S. citizen and then used his false name while applying to become a legal permanent resident and then a naturalized citizen. He used the same false name while applying for a U.S. passport. And in obtaining his Georgia Peace Officer Standards and Training Council certification, Campbell falsely claimed to be a naturalized U.S. citizen.
