Former High-Ranking Louisiana Army National Guardsman Sentenced to Probation After Previously Pleading Guilty to Making False Statements
For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Eastern District of Louisiana
According to court documents, KILEY misrepresented his marital status to the Louisiana Army National Guard to receive increased Basic Allowance for Housing and Family Separation Allowance pay. Specifically, KILEY knowingly submitted false documents to receive pay to which he was not entitled.
In or about July 2005, KILEY and his former spouse divorced, and KILEY failed to immediately notify officials at the Louisiana Army National Guard of the change in his marital status as required. In or about November 2012, KILEY submitted forms requesting Basic Allowance for Housing and Family Separation Allowance pay and falsely claimed that he was either married or not divorced. Based on these misrepresentations, which KILEY knew to be false at the time, he received more Basic Allowance for Housing and Family Separation Allowance pay than he was entitled.
U.S. Attorney Duane A. Evans praised the work of the Department of Defense, Office of Inspector General, Defense Criminal Investigative Service in investigating this matter. Assistant U.S. Attorney Julia K. Evans is in charge of the prosecution.
