WICHITA – (September 11, 2019) – A Wichita man has been found guilty of an unlawful act relating to the use of an identification card in Sedgwick County, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said.
Calvin Thompson, 59, pleaded no contest this week in Sedgwick County District Court to one felony count of an unlawful act relating to the use of an identification card. The case stemmed from an investigation by the Office of Special Investigations of the Kansas Department of Revenue, which revealed that on or about June 29, 2018, Thompson applied for a photo identification card at the Sedgwick County Driver’s License Office in Wichita using a false identity with accompanying false documentation.
This is the 16th conviction resulting from an agreement announced in March 2018 between the Office of the Attorney General and the Department of Revenue. Under the agreement, the attorney general’s office, in cooperation with local prosecutors, assumed responsibility for the prosecution of cases of tax fraud and related crimes investigated by the Department of Revenue in efforts to strengthen the state’s enforcement efforts for these types of crimes.
District Court Judge David Kaufman took the plea. Sentencing is scheduled for October 23 at 1:30 p.m.
The case is being prosecuted by Assistant Attorney General Jon Noble of Schmidt’s office.
