A 25-year-old Schofield Barracks soldier pleaded guilty in federal court today to bribery for selling thousands of gallons of jet fuel to a military contractor in Afghanistan.
Larry Emmons, an Army specialist assigned to A Company, 325th Brigade Support Battalion, faces a maximum 15-year prison term and $250,000 fine when a U.S. District Judge sentences him in October. He must also pay restitution and forfeit $74,830 in cash authorities seized from him in Jalalabad, Afghanistan in February.
As part of his plea deal with the prosecutor, Emmons has agreed to cooperate with the government in the prosecution of others.
