BOSTON – A Dominican national was sentenced today in federal court in Worcester for passport fraud and aggravated identity theft.

Carlos Morillo, 46, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Timothy S. Hillman to two years in prison. Morillo will be subject to deportation proceedings upon completion of his sentence. In April 2016, Morillo pleaded guilty to three counts of passport fraud and one count of aggravated identity theft.
