A NSA Mid-South employee pleaded guilty to stealing more than $22,000.
Donna Brown, 45, stole the money by filing false claims with the identities of family members of dead sailors. She was assigned to the Navy Personnel Command Onboard Naval Support Activity Mid-South.
Brown’s primary duties included coordinating travel and reimbursement claims for Navy families of deceased active duty sailors.
According to the Department of Justice, Brown filed nearly 19 false claims for travel reimbursement using the personal identifying information like social security numbers of family members of deceased Navy sailors. She deposited the money received into bank accounts.
Officials scheduled a Sept. 11 sentencing after she admitted to the crimes, committed from June 2012 to March 2013. Brown faces a maximum penalty of 10 years imprisonment, a $250,000 fine, and 3 years of supervised release.
