“The wheels of justice turn slowly, but grind exceedingly fine.” Looks like Paul A. Schroeder- the bogus former Houston-area PTSD counselor for the PTSD Foundation of America Jonn wrote about here and here – is about to find out the truth of that old saying up close and personal.
A Federal grand jury indicted Schroeder onThursday, June 29, 2012. The charge: falsifying his DD214. Schroeder faces up to $100,000 in fines and a year in jail.
No, it’s not a felony. But it’s still a good start. And if he’s convicted, it’s a Federal criminal conviction.
You may no longer get prosecuted for lying in a bar, or to your buddies, about your military record due to the recent SCOTUS decision regarding the Stolen Valor Act of 2005. But I’d still recommend thinking twice before wearing decorations you don’t rate, or forging a DD214 to support a bogus claim. Those are still Federal crimes; the laws defining them weren’t affected by the recent SCOTUS decision on the Stolen Valor Act of 2005.
Ain’t that right, Paulie-boy?
