Former DEA Pilot From Denver Sentenced For Lying About Flights

DENVER (AP) — A former pilot for the Drug Enforcement Administration has been sentenced to probation and ordered to pay restitution for lying about the number of missions he flew while working for the DEA.

Forty-four-year-old Jeremy S. Peres of Denver will have to pay $4,368 for the flight fraud. He was also sentenced Wednesday to a year of probation.

Peres was indicted by a federal grand jury in Denver in February. He pleaded guilty to making and using false documents on August.

Between November 2011 and July 2012, Peres submitted 44 false and fraudulent hazard pay requests for missions he did not actually pilot or co-pilot. Peres no longer works for the DEA.
