Woman Admits To Marriage Fraud

Associated Press - October 8, 2014 7:30 am

A Manhattan woman has pleaded guilty to a marriage fraud scheme with a man who prosecutors say was trying to circumvent U.S. immigration laws.

48-year-old Jacqueline Reed pleaded guilty Monday to one count of conspiracy to commit marriage fraud.

A federal prosecutor says Reed submitted fraudulent paperwork to immigration authorities. The prosecutor says paperwork included a marriage license that was never filed with the state of Kansas and a false declaration that they lived together in Lawrence.

Reed faces up to five years in federal prison when she is sentenced in January.

Prosecutors say Reed’s arrangement was part of a conspiracy for foreigners seeking residency. They say the man who led the conspiracy was charged for coaching people how to answer questions during an immigration interview.
