For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Districts of Guam & the Northern Mariana Islands

     ALICIA A.G. LIMTIACO, United States Attorney for the Districts of Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands, announced that defendant GILLIAN A. GALLARDO, age 30, from Yigo, was sentenced on October 15, 2015, before Chief Judge Frances Tydingco-Gatewood, to three years of probation and was ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $19,098.50.

     Defendant GALLARDO, an active duty Staff Sergeant in the U.S. Air Force at the time of the offense, knowingly submitted false Overseas Housing Allowance (OHA) documentation to the Defense Finance and Accounting Service that falsely claimed that she paid $2,450 in rent every month for her supposed occupancy of a certain residence in Yigo.  In reality, GALLARDO lived rent-free at an entirely different address in Dededo and pocketed the OHA funds.  She pled guilty on June 3, 2015 to Submitting a Fraudulent Claim against the United States.  

     This case was investigated by the Air Force Office of Special Investigations.  The case was prosecuted by Special Assistant U.S. Attorneys Kurt E. Grunawalt and Brian D. Ralston.
