HONOLULU (AP) - A Marine stationed in Hawaii pleaded guilty to possession unlawful firearms during a military court hearing Tuesday for allegations he tried to bring weapons onto an Air Force base while home in Nebraska.
Ali Al-kazahg’s sentence includes a bad conduct discharge, reduction in rank from private first class to private and three years of confinement, said Capt. Eric Abrams, a Marine Corps spokesman. Al-kazahg will receive credit for 288 days he has already served.
Al-kazahg, 22, was visiting Nebraska, where he grew up, when guards stopped his pickup May 31 at an Offutt Air Force Base gate after seeing his name on a law enforcement “be on the lookout” bulletin.

He also pleaded guilty to making false official statements and fraudulent enlistment. When he enlisted, he withheld information about his past, including a previous arrest, suspension from school and being fired from a job, Abrams said. The false statements stem from “purposefully misleading government officials” in his chain of command and at Offutt, Abrams said.
