Hattiesburg, Miss – Christopher Chase Bradshaw, 28, of Hattiesburg, pled guilty to conspiracy to defraud the United States and theft of government funds, U.S. Attorney Gregory K. Davis announced today. Bradshaw was a cashier in a military finance unit stationed in Afghanistan. As a result of his access to a military sponsored debit card program, Bradshaw was able to add money to his debit card, along with the debit cards of two others, without having those funds withdrawn from his personal bank account. During the course of the conspiracy, Bradshaw and others stole almost $30,000 from the government.
Bradshaw is scheduled to be sentenced on August 29, 2013 by United States District Judge Keith Starrett in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. He faces a maximum sentence of ten years in prison and a fine of up to $500,000.
