Contractor convicted of over-charging Air Force by $300K
Wednesday - 2/8/2012, 9:59am EST
The Air Force Office of Special Investigations says Charles R. Priestley, 48, who operated Louisiana-based Hummingbird Aviation, was contracted to build and service helicopters for use in Afghanistan.
An interagency team of investigators found the company had over-charged for work that hadn't been done.
Priestley was sentenced to five years of probation and must repay the $300,000 to the U.S. Transportation Command, which is based out of Scott Air Force Base, Ill. He will also have to pay $4,000 in fines.
The Air Force says they're committed to fighting fraud and helping the branch meet its missions.
