SAN DIEGO — Prosecutors say a former Marine has pleaded guilty to submitting nearly $100,000 in fake rent receipts to the Marine Corps for reimbursement.

U.S. Attorney Laura Duffy said Thursday that former Gunnery Sgt. Devin Pierre Alario submitted the requests while he was stationed at Camp Pendleton from 2009 to 2011.

Neither Alario nor his attorney could be immediately reached for comment.

Prosecutors say Alario submitted fake receipts and leases to falsely claim reimbursement for rent that he never paid on 27 occasions.

According to the plea agreement, Alario sought reimbursement for up to $3,800 a month and he made more than $95,000 from the scheme.

Alario has agreed to pay restitution to the Marine Corps.

He faces up to five years in prison.
