San Antonio fake military hero could get prison
SAN ANTONIO (AP) - An Army veteran in San Antonio who fabricated a glowing military career with awards for heroism could be sent to prison.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Pamela Mathy on Thursday declined to set bond for 39-year-old Brian Culp and set a July 15 probation revocation hearing.
Culp in December 2008 pleaded guilty and was sentenced to three years of probation for his military deception.
Culp, who served two tours in the Army, had faced six months in prison on charges of falsely claiming a Purple Heart, falsely claiming a Bronze Star with valor and creating a fake ID that gave him access to military installations.
The San Antonio Express-News reported Friday that Culp in late June was kicked out of a halfway house amid allegations of insolence, lying and intimidation of staff.
