Illegal Alien from Lawrence Pleads Guilty and is Sentenced for False Identity Crime

BOSTON – A Dominican national pleaded guilty and was sentenced in federal court yesterday for fraudulent use of a Social Security number.

Jairo Samuel Andujar Ruiz, 27, formerly of Lawrence, pleaded guilty to one count of false representation of a Social Security number.  After accepting Andujar Ruiz’s guilty plea, U.S. District Court Judge Indira Talwani sentenced him to time served, approximately 7 ½ months, to be followed by one year of supervised release.  Andujar Ruiz is also subject to deportation proceedings.

On Oct. 30, 2018, Andujar Ruiz used the Social Security number of a U.S. citizen to fraudulently obtain a valid Massachusetts state identification card under the victim’s name.  In order to obtain a Massachusetts ID card, Andujar Ruiz fraudulently provided various documents to the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles in Haverhill including a Social Security card, bearing the victim’s name.

In addition, Andujar Ruiz obtained a Massachusetts driver’s license in 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 Adam W. Deitch of Lelling’s Major Crimes Unit prosecuted the case.

    When I read the title “Illegal Allen from Lawrence I pictured an intergalactic alien that has been sentenced for invading Lawrence from Galaxy 666”.

      Nope sorry you pictured the wrong type of illegal alien. In general the type you pictured will not be called illegal, just alien. When illegal alien is used it is only used to describe a person who entered this country illegally.

    Instead of “Sentenced,” the title of the article should actually read “Illegal alien from Lawrence’s RELEASED, after 7 1/2 months of time served. Now free to commit more crimes while being “supervised!”
    Ridiculous!!! Wait until he steals your identity!

    It because he is an ILLEGAL ALIEN !!! He’s here from another country which makes him an Alien and he didn’t come into this country the legal way which makes him Illegal !!! If you out the two together it makes him an ILLEGAL ALIEAN !! Professionals that have to word thing’s in a more professional manner would say that he is an Undocumented Alien because they can not say Undocumented Thief !!!! so in the end he is a ILLEGAL ALIEN because I’m no judge, lawyer or any other kind of professional that would have to be politically correct !!!
