Seven Sentenced In NAS North Island Contractor Fraud

Four former Navy officials and three defense contractors were sentenced to prison and probation terms Tuesday for their admitted roles in a wide-ranging fraud and corruption scheme at Naval Air Station North Island.

U.S. District Judge Larry Burns handed down the sentences in federal court in downtown San Diego. The defendants pleaded guilty in March to taking part in a conspiracy in which defense contractors provided Navy officials with over $1 million worth of gifts - including cash, gift cards, flat-screen televisions and home-remodeling services - in return for millions of dollars in fraudulent work orders, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office in San Diego.

The ex-naval officials charged in the case were Brian Delaney, David Lindsay, Kiet Luc and Donald Vangundy. They worked in a maintenance program for the Navy's E-2 and C-2 aircraft at the Coronado air base.
