YONGSAN GARRISON, South Korea An 8th Army soldier was convicted Friday of fraudulently padding his and his wifes military records to gain promotions.

But, like his wife who was convicted of similar charges in late October, he will be allowed to remain in the Army

Staff Sgt. Andre Gundy was sentenced to a reduction in rank to E-3, forfeiture of $500 a month for 24 months, a reprimand, three months of hard labor without confinement and 60 days of restriction.

The six-member panel convicted him of conspiracy to commit larceny, 11 counts of making false official statements and dereliction of duty.

Gundy had been accused of adding nonexistent awards and fraudulent associates degrees to the couples military records.

The panel heard testimony Thursday and deliberated for about two hours on Friday morning.
