USA v. Lewis (Afghanistan Fuel Delivery)

Raschad L. “Sean” Lewis, a former fuel section employee of KBR assigned to Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan, was found guilty by a federal jury of conspiracy, false writing, bribery of a public official, and false claims stemming from a fuel diversion scheme. Between May and September 2006, Lewis and other KBR employees conspired to accept payments from drivers delivering jet fuel who, in fact, were selling their fuel to parties outside the airfield. Pursuant to the conspiracy, more than 48 truckloads of fuel valued at more than $800,000 were diverted for sale outside the airfield. Two other former KBR employees, Wallace A. Ward and James N. Sellman, were convicted for their roles in the scheme. In August 2009, Lewis was sentenced to 84 months in prison, three years of supervised release, and ordered to pay $891,000 in restitution. See related KBR instance, “Conspiracy to Defraud the Government While Overseeing Fuel Deliveries in Afghanistan."
