A former Huntsville defense contractor was sentenced today to nine years in prison after pleading guilty to wire fraud and related charges in a $14 million fraud scheme, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Birmingham.
Joseph Shane Terry, 41, of Meridianville, was the owner of Government Technical Services. He pleaded guilty last year to wire fraud, making false statements to the Small Business Administration and on bank loan applications, and to money laundering.
The sentencing capped a more than four-year investigation that involved the Justice Department, the IRS, the Army, Department of Defense and Defense Criminal Investigative Service, according to a DOJ news release.
