Ex Kansas Air Guard National Member Convicted Of Fraud

KSAL StaffJune 28, 2013

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – A former Kansas Air Guard National member has been convicted of fraudulently receiving nearly $55,000 in benefits by claiming she was commuting to a Wichita base from Arizona.

The U.S. Attorney’s office says a jury on Thursday found 28 year old Wichita resident Eledria Bradley guilty of one count of wire fraud.

Bradley was a senior airman assigned to McConnell Air Force Base in Wichita. Prosecutors said she used an online system for service members to change her address from Wichita to Chandler, Arizona, which put her outside the commuting distance from McConnell.

Prosecutors said the phony address allowed Bradley to collect nearly $55,000 in lodging and per diem benefits from April 2009 until April 2011.

A sentencing date has not been set.
