(Ed. Note: Following is a summary of activity in the U.S. Federal District Court in Wyoming. It was prepared by U.S. Attorney Matt Mead's office in Cheyenne. This information will run as part of the Casper Inside Public Record on Saturdays as provided by Mead's office.)

Pleas

*William I. Carney, age 37, of Cheyenne, appeared before Federal District Court Judge Clarence A. Brimmer on June 16, 2004, and pled guilty to theft of government property - embezzlement. This offense is punishable by up to 10 years of imprisonment, up to a $250,000 fine, and three years of supervised release. Sentencing has not yet been set. This case was investigated by the Department of Defense, Criminal Investigative Service.

Carney was a former staff sergeant with the National Guard and served as military pay technician and military reservist, who was responsible for inputting pay actions into the Wyoming National Guard computer system, which then allowed the soldiers to be paid. From May through August 2003, Carney made false entries into the pay system which allowed him to receive pay for duty that he did not perform. In addition he made false entries which allowed him to receive incapacitation pay in spite of his being on active duty during the times for which he received the incapacitation pay.

"As soon as we identified the issue, we contacted the Defense Criminal Investigative Service and requested a criminal investigation ensue and then requested prosecution by the U.S. Attorney's Office," said Maj. Gen. Ed Wright, Wyoming's Adjutant General. "We will continue to aggressively monitor the integrity of our organization and take appropriate action whenever one of our members is potentially engaging in criminal misconduct, as we did so in this case. Will Carney is no longer a member of our National Guard and we are very pleased with the support that the DCIS and the U.S. Attorney's Office provided."
