Diyana Montes pleaded guilty to one count of bribery for her role in a scheme to fraudulently bill the U.S. Army for trucking services in Afghanistan. According to the government, Montes worked for KBR at Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan, in 2008 where she worked with local Afghan contractors to transport U.S. military equipment, fuel, and other supplies throughout Afghanistan.
