U.S v. Cicatello (Submitting False Time Cards and Intelligence Reports)

Former SAIC intelligence analyst Thomas Cicatello pleaded guilty to charges of submitting false claims to the government in 2011 while providing image and data analysis services to the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA). Cicatello admitted that he submitted time cards for hours he had not actually worked, and that he concealed his absences by preparing false intelligence reports indicating “NSTR” (“nothing significant to report”) without actually having reviewed the materials required to make that determination. He was sentenced to two years of probation and ordered to pay $35,181 in restitution, plus a $100 special assessment.
