U.S. v. Johnson (Conspiracy to Commit Wire Fraud)

Keith Johnson, who worked for Lockheed Martin subsidiary PAE Government Systems, and his wife, Angela Gregory Johnson , were convicted of conspiring to defraud the military on vehicle parts purchases in Afghanistan in 2007 and 2008. Keith used his position as a program manager to steer about $10 million in orders to a shell company operated by his wife, who used her maiden name to conceal her relationship to Keith. The Johnsons also conspired with two subcontractors to steer purchase orders to a company owned by the subcontractors in exchange for kickbacks. The Johnsons pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud. Keith was sentenced to 30 months in prison. The Johnsons were also ordered to forfeit more than $2 million.
