A Pennsylvania man who managed large-scale projects at U.S. military facilities in New Jersey has pleaded guilty to charges he directed subcontracts to a company he secretly owned, causing losses of $1.4 million.
He also accepted kickbacks totaling $180,345 from four subcontractors on the expectation they would receive favorable treatment, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of New Jersey.
James Conway, 45, pleaded guilty to a criminal indictment charging him with one count of wire fraud and one count of accepting unlawful kickbacks.
According to federal prosecutors:
From September 2009 to August 2015, Conway secretly owned a company called Walsh Construction Services, which purported to provide construction services. Using his position as regional manager for a construction contractor, Conway steered subcontracts to Walsh Construction for jobs at Picatinny Arsenal in Morris County, New Jersey, and at the Joint Base McGuire-Dix Lakehurst in Burlington County, New Jersey.
