Former Sgt. 1st Class William Todd Chamberlain pleaded guilty to conspiracy and receiving stolen government property. While a sentencing hearing has yet to be scheduled, he is facing up to 15 years in prison. He was indicted in 2014 along with four other soldiers in his unit. The men used funds to purchase what they called “mission critical items,” when the money was actually for humanitarian projects in Afghanistan. Funds were stolen, and receipts were altered or labeled missing in order to cover up the crime.
