Rainsberger conducted his own investigation into the allegations against Mavado in 2011, and subsequently reinstated the visa for the artist. That allowed Mavado to travel to the U.S. to take advantage of performance and recording opportunities.  

 

In exchange for his assistance in obtaining a U.S. visa, the musician reportedly bought Rainsberger two luxury watches worth about $2,500.

Prosecutors said Rainsberger also received free admission to nightclubs, backstage passes and a birthday party hosted by Mavado.

At the same time, Rainsberger, who was already married, became engaged to a Jamaican woman and intentionally withheld the disclosure of the relationship from the U.S. government, prosecutors said.

Rainsberger also admitted to illegally accessing State Department visa and passport databases for personal purposes, prosecutors said.
