GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - A former Navy senior chief has been sentenced to prison for 43 months and ordered to help repay more than $61,000 obtained through false travel claims while he was stationed at the Naval Construction Battalion Center in Gulfport, Mississippi.

The Sun Herald reports (http://bit.ly/1lwe9N5 ) U.S. District Judge Sul Ozerden sentenced 40-year-old Carl E. Moore, of Middletown, Rhode Island, on Thursday.

The judge also fined him $2,000 and ordered three years of post-release supervision.

Moore was among nine current or former Navy workers indicted last year on federal charges involving fraudulent travel claims while they were assigned to the Seabee base in Gulfport between June 2006 and November 2011.

Moore pleaded guilty Feb. 24 to charges of conspiracy and aggravated identity theft.
