Dominican with murder charges convicted for false US citizenship claims
Alaska (AP) — A citizen of the Dominican Republic has been convicted of 12 counts, including making false claims of U.S. citizenship.


The U.S. attorney's office says Javier Martinez also was convicted of re-entry after deportation, aggravated identity theft and illegal possession of a firearm.

Prosecutors said Martinez unlawfully returned to the U.S. after being deported in 1992. The U.S. attorney's office, in a release, said Martinez used another man's name to apply for an Alaska identification card and get jobs at Anchorage hotels. Prosecutors said he falsely claimed to be a U.S. citizen on application forms filed with the state and hotels.

The U.S. attorney's office says Martinez separately faces murder charges in state court in connection with an Anchorage hotel shooting.

Sentencing in the federal case was set for August.
