Army officer guilty of making false statements
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) — U.S. Attorney' officials say a U.S. Army officer has been found guilty of making false statements and stealing government property.
Authorities say 45-year-old Lt. Col. James McLinnaham made false statements on official disclosure forms, in a questionnaire that was required for national security clearance and in work orders he submitted to the Army print shop.
Authorities say McLinnaham failed to disclose his position and wages from an outside business on financial disclosure forms, a prior marriage and a misdemeanor arrest. Officials say McLinnaham also printed posters for his outside business that he said were needed for official purposes.
McLinnaham, who is stationed at Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, faces a maximum of five years in prison and is scheduled to be sentenced in April.
