Finally, someone has been indicted over the ridiculously expensive shindig the GSA held in Vegas back in 2011.

Neely faces up to five years in prison if convicted according to the DOJ press release:
The indictment includes three false claims counts, under 18 U.S.C. § 287, and two counts of making false statements and using false documents, under 18 U.S.C. § 1001. Neely is scheduled to make his initial appearance in federal court in San Francisco on October 20, 2014, before the Honorable Elizabeth D. Laporte, United States Magistrate Court Judge.
If convicted, the defendants face a maximum sentence of five years imprisonment, and a fine of $250,000 for each violation. However, any sentence following conviction would be imposed by the court after consideration of the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and the federal statute governing the imposition of a sentence, 18 U.S.C. § 3553.
He should be facing five years for that picture alone.
