U.S. v. Wilson (Making a Fraudulent and Materially False Statement)

Randy Mitchell Wilson pleaded guilty to one count of making a fraudulent and materially false statement to government agents. Wilson, a former director of manufacturing services at Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII), made the false statement in March 2014 to Navy and Coast Guard agents who were investigating government mischarging. He told the agents he had no knowledge of an employee receiving unauthorized premium dive pay when not actively diving, though he knew he had approved one or more employees to receive premium dive pay without actually diving. In August 2016, Wilson was sentenced to two years’ probation, a $4,000 fine, and a $100 assessment. In August 2017, HII paid the government $9.3 million to settle a related civil fraud investigation (see Huntington Ingalls instance “U.S. ex rel. Faulkner v. Huntington Ingalls Industries (Pascagoula Shipyard False Billing)”.
