Admiral Bailey Plead Guilty, Fined $160,000

Glendon Bailey on Wednesday pleaded guilty in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court and was fined $160,000.

The popular entertainer and football coach, who goes by the stage name 'Admiral Bailey', was arrested and charged on February 23 with two counts of uttering forged documents, two counts of obtaining a passport by false pretence, two counts of possession of forged documents, and a count each of attempting to obtain a passport by false pretence and conspiracy to defraud.

According to the police, Bailey was held after he went to the Passport, Immigration and Citizenship Agency in Kingston where he attempted to renew a passport in the name Michael George Sullivan.

When Bailey appeared in court in March, his attorney, Tom Tavares-Finson, told Senior Magistrate Judith Pusey that the passport for which his client is charged is a document that he has been using for 30 years.
