A 28-year military career ended in a felony sentence Wednesday when an Army Reserve lieutenant colonel from Newport was sent to a halfway house for six months for taking $442,000 in pay he didn’t earn.

The Register-Guard reports 51-year-old John Calvin Amos also was ordered to repay the money and serve five years of probation. He pleaded guilty to concealing a felony.

At his sentencing in federal court in Eugene, Amos admitted accepting active duty pay that the Army erroneously sent him for four years after he left active status. He was a former commander at the Umatilla Army Depot near Pendleton.
