New York: Supposed LPN accused of identity theft:
A woman who posed as an LPN has been charged with stealing the identity of her “best friend” to work at a New York nursing home.

Tashiany L. Martin, 30, of Atlanta is accused of fraudulently claiming to be Micheiko Foster-Wright, LPN, 37, of Rochester while working at Latta Road Nursing Home, Greece, NY, from September 2003-June 2004.

According to the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle, court papers allege that Martin, formerly of Rochester, dropped out of nursing school and illegally “assumed” Foster-Wright’s identity. Court documents also claim Martin provided Latta Road officials with a bogus driver’s license and Social Security card, and a nursing license bearing the name of Foster-Wright, who actually worked at another Monroe County nursing facility, when Martin was looking for work in 2003.

JURY FINDS CITIZEN OF JAMAICA GUILTY OF
PASSPORT FRAUD AND IDENTITY THEFT OFFENSES

According to court documents, statements made in court and the evidence introduced during the trial, in 2002, MARTIN, a citizen of Jamaica, obtained a New York driver’s license and a New York birth certificate by using the name of a former friend. In 2008, MARTIN used those documents to apply for a United States passport at the Connecticut Passport Agency in Norwalk.

The evidence at trial further revealed that MARTIN also used her friend’s identity in 2002 when she successfully applied for and obtained a U.S. passport, and, in 2003, when she successfully applied for and obtained a job as a licensed practical nurse at a Rochester, N.Y. nursing home. MARTIN’s friend was a licensed practical nurse, but MARTIN was not.

    That’s beyond mere identity theft, that brings to mind the movie “catch me if you can”. Maybe I’m just the biggest chicken on the planet but I find it hard to believe people still play with the law as stupidly as they do.
    Prison time, deportation, criminal record…..worth it much?

    So she worked for close to a year as an LPN at a Nursing Home? Wow, I hope no patient was harm by this unlicensed care giver. How could the Passport Agency issue a Passport to two people with the same Name, Social Security and Dade of Birth? Now she is looking at 10+ years in Federal Prison and deportation. SMH
