Airman convicted of federal crime for being 6 minutes late

(Star-Ledger) At the end of the week, Mario Manago, 33, will be out of the Air Force after 12 years.

But he’s not just out of a job — he’s now convicted of a federal crime.

His offense? Being six minutes late to a meeting.

Manago, of Willingboro, was convicted at court-martial March 9 of failing to go to his “appointed place of duty.” He was late to a meeting he requested with his commander to discuss his concerns that he was being treated unfairly by his supervisors at the Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst in Burlington County, according to him and his attorney.

“When he said I was guilty, it didn’t hit me until after I sat down and thought about it,” Manago said earlier this month. He realized he was now convicted of a federal crime “for being six minutes late to a meeting I requested, that was about wrongdoing. Something is wrong.”
