Saudi Is Sentenced in Visa Fraud Case

January 05, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

A Saudi man rounded up with other Middle Easterners in the aftermath of Sept. 11 received a four-month sentence for visa fraud but was cleared of any connection to the terrorist attacks.

U.S. District Judge T. S. Ellis III, in Alexandria, imposed the sentence on Khalid al-Draibi after the man apologized for making false statements on his tourist visa application.

Al-Draibi will be deported because of the fraud, and his sentence will essentially amount to his time in custody since Sept. 11, Assistant U.S. Atty. John Morton said.
