A Delaware State University administrator who resigned last week has a criminal record.

The News Journal reports that Freddie A. Asinor, the former dean of the College of Education, Health and Public Policy, is a two-time felon with convictions for forgery, embezzlement and lying on a passport application.

Court records show Asinor pleaded guilty to forgery and embezzlement, stemming from crimes committed while Asinor worked at Clemson University.

In a separate case, Asinor later pleaded guilty to making false statements on a passport application. Prosecutors said the Ghana native falsely claimed he was born in Connecticut to get a U.S. passport.
