Man sentenced for lying on Air Force application
OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — A 31-year-old La Vista man has been sentenced to three years’ probation for lying on a security clearance application with the U.S. Air Force Weather Agency.
The U.S. Attorney’s office for Nebraska said this week that Franklin Ansu, of La Vista, was also ordered to pay a $1,000 fine and perform 120 hours of community service while on probation.
Ansu, a naturalized United States citizen, served in the United States Air Force. After his discharge, he obtained a civilian position with the United States Air Force Weather Agency at Offutt Air Force Base.
Prosecutors say Ansu completed a required form for the position which described his background and prior work experience. Prosecutors say his answers omitted any reference to his prior employment with the Ghana Bureau of National Investigations.
