Entertainer Admiral Bailey was slapped with $160,000 fine in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court today (27/05/15).
The popular football coach who pleaded guilty on Wednesday, was arrested and charged on February 23 with two counts of uttering forged documents, two counts of obtaining a passport by false pretense, two counts of possession of forged documents, and a count each of attempting to obtain a passport by false pretense and conspiracy to defraud.
Police reports are that, Admiral Bailey was held after he went to the Passport, Immigration and Citizenship Agency in Kingston where he attempted to renew a passport in the name Michael George Sullivan.
In March, Admiral Bailey’s attorney, Tom Tavares-Finson told Senior Magistrate Judith Pusey that the passport for which his client is charged is a document that he has been using for 30 years.
