The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that Susan Walmer, age 46, of Shiremanstown, Pennsylvania, was indicted Wednesday and charged with three counts of passport fraud.
According to United States Attorney Peter J. Smith, in December 2007, Walmer submitted three applications for U.S. passports for her children’s behalf. With the applications, Walmer allegedly submitted a forged affidavit from her ex-husband claiming she had his permission to obtain the passports for travel to Canada. While Susan Walmer and the children’s father shared physical custody, legal custody was provided to the father. The father did not provide permission for the children to obtain passports or leave the United States.
This case is being investigated by the United States Department of State, Diplomatic Security Service and is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Daryl F. Bloom.
