Another Illegal Alien from Lawrence Sentenced for Aggravated Identity Theft

BOSTON – A Dominican national previously residing in Lawrence was sentenced today for aggravated identify theft and falsely using a Social Security Number.

Moices Santilit, 63, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Indira Talwani to two years and one day in prison and two years of supervised release. In March 2020, he pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated identity theft and one count of using a Social Security number that is not assigned to him.

In February 2016, Santilit used the Social Security number of a U.S. citizen in order to fraudulently obtain a valid Massachusetts Asbestos Worker Identification card under the victim’s name.

United States Attorney Andrew E. Lelling and Jason Molina, Acting Special Agent in Charge of Homeland Security Investigations in Boston made the announcement today. Assistant U.S. Attorney Eugenia M. Carris of Lelling’s Public Corruption & Special Prosecutions Unit prosecuted the case.
