A federal judge in Baltimore yesterday sentenced an Afghan national living in Maryland to almost two years in prison for filing false documents in his immigration case.
U.S. District Judge Marvin J. Garbis sentenced Nabi Nabil, 30, of Brandywine to 22 months in prison followed by three years of supervised release for conspiracy to obstruct proceedings before a United States agency. Nabil is subject to deportation proceedings after he serves his prison sentence, prosecutors said.
According to his guilty plea, Nabil applied for status as a permanent resident but lied about his marital status. He claimed he was married to another immigrant who was in the United States legally, but that claim was untrue, according to court papers.
