Roy John Scott: Over the course of seven years, Scott received $21,960 in medical benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs. He claimed he had served in the Marine Corps in Korea, where he was wounded and awarded medals of valor. In fact, Scott never served outside the United States, never earned the Purple Heart, Bronze Star and Combat Action Ribbon he said he did and was actually court martialed and dishonorably discharged from the military. Scott pleaded guilty and faces up to one year and six months in jail and $105,000 dollars in fines. As part of his plea agreement, Scott will pay $21,960 in restitution.
