Man pleads guilty in contracting fraud scheme
Thursday - 5/17/2012, 3:56pm EDT
WASHINGTON (AP) - A former Army Corps of Engineers employee has pleaded guilty to his role in a $30 million bribery and kickback scheme involving the awarding of government contracts.
Kerry F. Khan entered the plea Thursday in U.S. District Court in Washington. His son, Lee Khan, is scheduled to also admit guilt.
The Khans and two other men are charged in an indictment unsealed in October in a complex scheme to defraud the government through inflated invoices and the corrupt steering of contracts.
The two other men have pleaded guilty. Several others have been charged in the scheme.
Khan lawyer Jeff Weiner said his client is remorseful and accepts responsibility.
