A former civilian Army employee pleaded guilty on May 19, 2011, to stealing funds from the Army Emergency Relief (AER) Office at Camp Humphreys in Korea during 2005 and 2006. As you know, the AER funds are designed to be used to provide low interest loans, grants and other assistance to Army members and their dependents and are totally funded by contributions. After his guilty plea, the accused faces a possible ten years in prison and a $250,000.00 fine for his “take” of only $9,000.00+. The case was investigated by DCIS and the Army Audit Agency and is being prosecuted by the Department of Justice. Click here to read the whole story.
