MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A former Montgomery National Guard recruiter accused of taking advantage of an incentivized referral system has pleaded guilty to theft of public money.

The Montgomery Advertiser (https://on.mgmadv.com/1N8U1z2 ) reports that Brocrick McCall could face up to 10 years in federal prison, following his guilty plea Thursday in Montgomery U.S. District Court.

According to his indictment, McCall and three others plotted to defraud the National Guard by obtaining recruits’ personal information and then nominating the potential recruits to the National Guard without informing them.

The indictment says that for every potential recruit that a recruiting assistant formally nominated, the National Guard would deposit up to $2,500 into the recruiting assistant’s bank account.

Army personnel whose main job was a recruiter, such as McCall, were ineligible for these types of incentive payments.
