Guilty plea in Defense Dept. fraud
Federal prosecutors say a Virginia man has pleaded guilty to mail fraud in a plot to defraud the Defense Department.
Twenty-eight-year-old Jonathan Feeney of Woodbridge, Va., entered the plea Wednesday to a criminal information. He will be sentenced on Oct. 18.
According to court documents, Feeney worked a defense contractor and was responsible for buying items under the contract.
The documents state that Feeney began making purchases of camera lenses and video equipment, keeping the equipment for his personal use but billing the contractor for the purchases. He sold some of the items on an Internet auction site.
Prosecutors say Feeney made more than $475,000 in illicit purchases.
