Wire Fraud Plea Nets Two Years

A former US Army contract officer received a two year prison sentence, supervised release, and restitution after entering a plea to wire fraud. According to the DOJ press release here,

"Johnson admitted that from 2000 to 2005, he used his official position to obtain more than $150,000 from the Army by directing two prime contractors to subcontract with two companies in which Johnson secretly held a financial interest. Johnson also admitted that he falsely certified that the prime contractors and their subcontractors had provided services to the government when, in fact, such services were not provided."
