Baltimore, Maryland — A federal grand jury has indicted Oluwatoyin Aborisade, aka “Thoyinstar ,” aka “Toyin,” 43, of Owings Mills, Maryland, with conspiracy to commit visa fraud, visa fraud and aggravated identity theft. An indictment is not a guilty verdict. A person charged by indictment is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a subsequent criminal trial. If convicted, Aborisade faces a maximum sentence of 15 years in federal prison for conspiracy to commit visa fraud, a maximum sentence of 15 years in federal prison for fraud, and a mandatory minimum of two years in prison following any other sentence imposed for aggravated identity theft. Actual sentences for federal crimes are generally lower than the maximum sentences. A federal district judge will determine each sentence taking into account U.S. criminal law and other legal factors.
