Ex-Iraq Contractor from Texas Gets Prison for $1.3M Scam
A former Texas co-owner of a development company has been sentenced to 2½ years in prison for submitting nearly $1.3 million in fake invoices for Iraq reconstruction.
Prosecutors in San Antonio say 33-year-old Jill Ann Charpia in August pleaded guilty to falsifying official documents.
The former San Antonio woman was sentenced Thursday in connection with fabricated documents and forged signatures related to Iraq reconstruction government contracts. She must also pay at least $920,000 in restitution.
