Deirdre Daly, Acting United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that NAIM HASAAN, 31, of New Haven, pleaded guilty today before United States Magistrate Judge Donna F. Martinez in Hartford to one count of social security number fraud.

According to court documents and statements made in court, on 10 occasions between September 2006 and November 2007, HASAAN applied for a non-driver identification card at the Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles.  Each time HASAAN presented a name and social security number of another person along with his own photo.  As a result, HASAAN falsely obtained 10 non-driver identifications in other people’s names, each one bearing his own photo.

HASAAN is scheduled to be sentenced by Chief United States District Judge Alvin W. Thompson on September 3, 2013, at which time HASAAN faces a maximum term of imprisonment of five years and a fine of up to $250,000.

This matter is being investigated by the Social Security Administration Office of Inspector General.  The case is being prosecuted by Special Assistant United States Attorney Anjna Kapoor and Assistant United States Attorney Henry K. Kopel.
