Army vet sentenced to 18 months, must pay $1.3M, for stealing Fort Hood military gear

An Army veteran who was facing up to five years in prison after pleading guilty to participating in the theft of $2.1 million worth of military gear from Fort Hood received a prison sentence plus a hefty restitution payment.

During a remote hearing on Tuesday afternoon, Jessica Elaintrell Smith, 30, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Drew Tipton to 18 months in prison, followed by two years of probation. Tipton ordered that Smith pay nearly $1.3 million as restitution to the U.S. Army. While in prison, she will have to pay $25 per quarter, and then $250 a month once she is released. At a rate of $250 per month, it would take more than 400 years to pay off nearly $1.3 million.

She also will have to pay the U.S. $100 as a “special assessment.”

A co-defendant in the case, Nathan Nichols, who has pleaded guilty and is set to be sentenced in October, also will contribute to paying the restitution amount, Tipton said.

Smith, Nichols and another person were accused of stealing dozens of Army thermal scopes, as well as night vision goggles and other equipment from Fort Hood. The were caught after the high-dollar gear turned up for sale on eBay.

Is $1 Worth of Shampoo Worth More Than The Life of a Black Man?

Black man with mental illness killed after stealing $1 worth of shampoo from store; Activists say officer’s actions are worse than the George Floyd incident caught on camera

Does a Black man’s life have less value than a $1 worth of shampoo taken from a dollar store?

Sadly, at least here in Harris County, Texas, it appears so!

The George Floyd tragic murder caught on camera completely riveted this nation.


Brooks was killed after being chased down, beaten, and tasered for stealing roughly a dollar worth of shampoo from the store.

Activists who have heard from key sources who have seen the video, are saying that the actions of the white officer who killed Brooks is far worse than the George Floyd incident that was caught on camera and could lead to protests that are unparalleled to anything we have ever seen.
