A West Allis man accused of lying about his military service is missing as his trial date approached. John Hemphill had claimed to be a U-S Marine veteran who lost his leg when a roadside bomb went off. He used his fake service to get military discounts and a membership in the American Legion. When Hemphill didn’t show for a hearing, his trial was canceled and a warrant issued for his arrest. He had never served in the military. His attorney says Hemphill is having “medical issues.” She points out that all of his bad conduct happened before Wisconsin’s “stolen valor” law was passed by the Legislature.
