U.S. v. Schroeder (Hanford Time Card Fraud)

Carl Schroeder pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to defraud the government. Schroeder pleaded to allegations that he and other employees of CH2M Hill Hanford Group submitted time cards falsely claiming overtime hours at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Hanford Nuclear Site between 2004 and 2008. He admitted he was paid at least $50,000 for overtime he did not actually work. Schroeder agreed to continue assisting the government’s investigation in return for two years of supervised release and a fine of $50,000 (plus a $100 special assessment). In April 2015, his fine was reduced to $25,000. See related CH2M Hill Companies pending instance, “U.S. v. Careaga (Hanford Timecard Fraud).”
