Dominican man gets 27 months for using dead man’s ID to pass security checks

PORTSMOUTH — A Massachusetts man was sentenced to 27 months in prison for using the identity of a dead man to pass security checks at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard.

Acting Maine U.S. Attorney Richard W. Murphy said Luis Medina’s sentence also includes two years of supervised release after his prison term for submitting a false document to a government agency, Social Security fraud and aggravated property theft.

On more than 30 occasions, Medina assumed the identity of Miguel A. Roldan, who died in 1994. Medina had been wanted on an arrest warrant out of Massachusetts on drug offenses, prosecutors said.

Obtaining a driver’s license in Roldan’s name in New Hampshire, Medina used the identity so he could do asbestos abatement work at the shipyard, Murphy said in a news release.

Medina first entered the facility on Aug. 12, 2015.

The Lawrence man was caught when State Police learned “Miguel A. Roldan” had renewed a car registration, despite being dead for more than 20 years.

Two state troopers stopped Medina while he was driving in Manchester on April 22, 2016.

Medina also faces deportation to the Dominican Republic.
