Former Kan. Air Guard member sentenced for wire fraud

WICHITA, KAN. — A former Kansas Air National Guard senior airman has been spared prison time but must repay nearly $55,000 in travel reimbursements that she fraudulently collected.

U.S. District Judge Monti Belot on Monday placed 29-year-old Eledria J. Bradley on three years of federal probation. A federal jury convicted Bradley in June on one count of wire fraud.

Prosecutors say Bradley went online and changed her address to Chandler, Ariz., while she was deployed to McConnell Air Force Base in Wichita, where she lives.

The Arizona address placed Bradley outside the commuting distance for McConnell, allowing her to collect two years’ worth of benefits for lodging and per diem expenses.
