Michael Alexander, Corps of Engineers worker, pleads guilty to bribery
WASHINGTON (AP) - A former Army Corps of Engineers program manager has pleaded guilty to bribery and conspiracy to commit money laundering in a scheme that involved more than $20 million in bribes and kickback payments.
Fifty-five-year-old Michael A. Alexander of Woodbridge, Va., entered the plea Monday. He faces a maximum of 15 years on the bribery charge and 20 years on the conspiracy charge. A sentencing date has not been set.
Alexander also agreed to cooperate in the government's investigation.
Alexander, another Army Corps of Engineers employee and two other men were indicted in October on charges of participating in a scheme involving the awarding of government contracts. Prosecutors said that Alexander and another program manager received kickbacks in exchange for directing government contracts to a subcontractor.
