  • CAARNG Officers plead guilty to fraud

    Three California Army National Guard captains have pleaded guilty to misdemeanor fraud Tuesday in cases involving incentive payments in return for service commitments. Each faces up to a year in prison, fines and restitution of funds stolen.The pleas, the latest in a federal investigation into thousands of improper bonuses and loan repayments for Guard members, came from:

    - Capt. Yasser Brenes, 29, a recruiter who will pay $27,000 in restitution and up to $54,000 in fines.

    - Capt. Raymond Allard, 45, an educational services officer who will pay $29,000 in restitution and up to $58,000 in fines.

    - Capt. Thomas Nys, 49, who will pay $20,000 in restitution and up to $40,000 in fines.

    Assistant U.S. Attorney Aaron May told The Sacramento Bee that his Los Angeles office has coordinated closely with the California Guard, which he said would soon sever its relationship with the three officers.

        At least California is doing something about it! Better than a lot of other states!

        If any 1LT(P) or CPT is looking to IST to CA, you should email the IST coordinator and the OSM a link to the article and let them know that you're looking for a recently vacated O-3 slot.

          This would be irrelevant. Bonus money and SLRP is federally funded. How it is issued can be influenced by the state i.e. critical MOS lists, but the money from the feds for incentives can only be used for incentives.
