BURLINGTON, Vt. Prosecutors say a supply sergeant with the Vermont National Guard sergeant has been sentenced for misusing a government credit card for personal purchases including equipment commonly used to grow marijuana.

Edward Bouchard of Enosburg was sentenced on Monday to time served, three years of supervised release and ordered to pay back $11,329.

Court records say Bouchard has served as a supply sergeant with the Vermont National Guard 86th Troop Command since 2009, making sure unit members had the proper equipment to complete their mission.

Prosecutors say National Guard officials discovered 25 unauthorized purchases on Bouchard's government credit card, including electronic equipment and materials commonly used to grow marijuana. The office of the U.S. attorney for Vermont says Bouchard eventually admitted that he had used the card for personal gain.
