Guardsmen accused of fraud appear in court

TUCSON - Some of the 21 Air National Guardsmen accused of falsifying records to receive extra pay appeared in court Friday.

Only about a half dozen went to Pima Superior Court. Some live out of state. Most are no longer on active duty.

Attorney General Tom Horne's office pursued the charges, saying the defendants made false addresses to increase their pay, even though they were stationed at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base.

Records that identify all the defendants were still unavailable Friday afternoon.

None of them face any travel restrictions and are not considered threats to the public. They are all cooperating with court proceedings.

The investigation started in November 2007 and concluded September 2010.
