WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Canadian man accused stealing the identity of an infant brother is set to go on trial in federal court in Wichita.
Former Winfield resident Leslie Camick is charged with aggravated identity theft, obstruction of justice, mail fraud and wire fraud. His trial was scheduled to begin Tuesday in U.S. District Court.
He's accused of obtaining official identification documents, opening bank accounts and taking out patents under the name of Wayne Camick, who died in 1958.
Prosecutors allege Leslie Camick hatched a scheme in 1997 to assume the identity of his brother to flee Canada, where he owed unpaid child support and was wanted in a criminal case.
The government contends Leslie Camick came to the U.S. in 2000 and built a life under the assumed identity.
