Lyndon Mosley, US Marine Corps, was shot in the face while home on leave in Mississippi on November 29, 2016. Mosley is stationed at Camp LeJeune in North Carolina but he was home on leave visiting a daughter who had just been born. Mosley survived and reports indicate that he is recovering slowly. Jordan Williams turned himself in, admitted to the shooting, and was arrested. Williams was charged with aggravated assault.
A former Marine staff sergeant who accepted $150,000 from military contractors while deployed in Iraq was sentenced Friday to more than five years in federal prison.
Gilbert Mendez, 37, from Camp Lejeune, N.C., pleaded guilty last December to conspiracy to defraud the United States.
In handing down the 63-month sentence, U.S. District Judge Janis Sammartino told Mendez that he “breached his honor and his integrity” and that his conduct impacted not only the Marine Corps but every U.S. taxpayer.
