United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Selby man convicted of Fraudulent Acceptance of Payments was sentenced on April 30, 2013, by U.S. Magistrate Veronica L. Duffy.  Michael Kuehl, age 56, was sentenced to 2 years’ probation and ordered to pay $25 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund and $3,635.20 in restitution.

Between December 2011 and August 2012, Kuehl knowingly submitted applications for travel expenses he did not incur, resulting in payments to him for which he was not entitled.  He pleaded guilty on May 1, 2013.

This case was investigated by the Department of Veterans’ Affairs, Office of Inspector General.  Assistant U.S. Sarah B. Collins prosecuted the case.
