SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Three California Army National Guard captains 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.
