In mitigation, his defence barrister, Giles Cockings, told the court that Lennon had not stolen the passport, and had only used it for a day.
He told the court his client had pleaded guilty immediately, demonstrating "a certain amount of courage".
He went on:
Perhaps what screams volumes from this particular case are two main areas.
Firstly, this passport was not stolen, it was lent by a friend for whatever purpose.
Secondly, he was only using the passport, it transpires, for a day and a half. In fact he only spent one evening in the United States of America.
I think the intention was simply to avoid a necessity for a visa into the United States.
Upon realising that in actual fact it was not going to assist matters, on realising he had committed an offence, he used his own passport to come back.
It is not, I would suggest, the most aggravating of cases of this kind.
