A former employee of the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology, a component of the Department of Defense, was sentenced Tuesday to 30 months in prison for making more than $485,000 in false travel claims using the defense travel system.
John Brock, 52, of Crofton, Md., was sentenced by a U.S. District Judge in D.C. In addition to his prison term, Brock was sentenced to three years of supervised release, ordered to pay $485,535 in restitution and ordered to forfeit three sail boats and two residential properties.
Brock pleaded guilty in October 2011 to a charge of making a false claim against the U.S.
According to court documents, Brock worked as a budget analyst within the Resources Management Department of the AFIP from 2007 to 2011.
Brock admitted that in 2008 he used the profile of a former AFIP employee to submit a false travel voucher for $5,525 in expenses that were never incurred.
He also admitted to submitting 99 false travel vouchers from September 2008 to April 2011, totaling $485,535.
