PADUCAH, KY. — A U.S. Army soldier has been sentenced to serve 12 months and one day in prison for his role in stealing fuel at Forward Operating Base Fenty near Jalalabad, Afghanistan.

U.S. District Judge Thomas B. Russell handed down the sentence for 40-year-old Kevin Bilal Abdullah of Clarksville, Tenn., on Thursday.

Abdullah pleaded guilty on Aug. 29, 2013, to receiving payments from a representative of the trucking company in exchange for facilitating the theft of fuel in approximately 25 fuel trucks. At sentencing, he was ordered to pay $466,250 in restitution.

Abdullah’s sentencing was the fourth conviction arising from this investigation of fuel thefts at FOB Fenty. Three other people in Colorado received sentences ranging from 27 to 87 months in prison.
