Southern District of Florida

Jeffrey H. Sloman, Acting United States Attorney for the Southern District of Florida, and James Foster, Special Agent in Charge, U.S. Department of State, Diplomatic Security Service, announced that defendant Gregory Victor Revson, 49, of Islamorada, FL, was sentenced yesterday, August 20, 2009, by U.S. District Court Judge Ursula Ungaro to 75 months of imprisonment, to be followed by 3 years of supervised release on passport fraud and identity theft charges.

The Court sentenced Revson to an additional 14 months of imprisonment for violating the terms of his supervised release, which had been imposed following convictions in 2002 for identity theft, making false tax claims, and wire fraud.

According to court documents and statements made in open court, in 2006 and 2008, Revson fraudulently applied for and obtained United States passports using the identities of two deceased individuals. Upon his arrest, he was found in possession of a computer “thumb” drive that contained files with hundreds of other deceased victims’ names, dates of birth, social security numbers, and other identifying information.

Mr. Sloman commended the investigative efforts of the Diplomatic Security Service. This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jared M. Strauss.
