U.S. v. Hill (Mentor-Protégé Program Fraud)

Mark L. Hill, a director of business development at Caddell Construction Company, was indicted on three counts of major fraud against the federal government and one count of making a false statement relating to Caddell’s participation in the Department of Defense’s Mentor-Protégé Program and the Indian Incentive Program. The government alleged Hill engaged in a scheme to defraud the government by making numerous material misrepresentations and omissions designed to mislead the government into making inflated payments to Caddell from 2003 to 2005. In 2013, Hill was convicted on the false statement count and was sentenced to one year of probation and a $100 assessment.
