Former Danger player sentenced to prison
A former Nebraska Danger player is headed to prison after being convicted of lying on a passport application.
United States District Court Judge John M. Gerrard sentenced Kayne Farquharson, 32, to 21 months in federal prison followed by 3 years of supervised release after he pled guilty, according to United States Attorney Robert C. Stuart. Farquharson was also ordered to pay $18,809.00 in restitution in connection with some credit he had obtained in a fraudulent identity.
According to the Stuart, Farquharson identified, who himself as a person with the initials, T. L. M., submitted an Application for a U.S. Passport at the Passport Acceptance Office, in Grand Island in 2014. As proof of identity, Farquharson presented a Nebraska driver’s license in the name of T. L. M. and as proof of citizenship, a Florida birth certificate in the name of T. L. M. Farquharson also listed on the passport application his occupation as a “football player” and his employer as the Nebraska Danger, a professional indoor football team based in central Nebraska.
Stuart said in a statement that a United States passport was issued on June 3, 2014 in the name of T. L. M. and mailed to the address listed on the passport application in Grand Island. Photos were compared and it was determined that the person who submitted the application for the passport was Farquharson. Further investigation revealed that Farquharson and T.L.M. knew each other at the time Farquharson applied for the passport.
The case was investigated by the U.S. Department of State.
Farquharson was arrested for using a woman's debit card in 2015.
