Collier had previously pleaded not guilty but in court on Wednesday he admitted that starting in December 2009 he devised a scheme where he improperly received thousands of dollars in bonuses for Army Reserve recruits.

Collier worked in human resources at the military entrance processing station in Denver. In his position, he was ineligible for those bonuses.

The sentencing range for the crime under the plea agreement is between 15 and 21 months behind bars.

Collier has agreed to pay back $125,000 in restitution.

Collier remains free on bond and is scheduled to appear in court in October for sentencing.
