Federal prosecutors report that a former U.S. Navy Reserve commander has admitted to receiving $159,712 in overpayment during a 15-month period, after failing to out-process at the end of three months of active duty in 2009 at Patuxent River Naval Air Station.
Carl W. Marquis, a 48-year-old Burke, Va., resident employed as a civil servant with the Federal Aviation Administration, continued collecting the active-duty pay even after a reserve unit administrator discovered Marquis’ failure to change his work status, and he spent all but about $25,000 of the overpayment by last summer, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Maryland. Marquis faces a possible maximum sentence of five years in prison at a court hearing next March.
