PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A Georgia man is set to plead guilty later this week to his role in a kickbacks scheme that prosecutors say cost the Navy $7 to $20 million.
According to court documents, Patrick Nagle is scheduled to plead guilty on Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Providence in front of Chief Judge Mary Lisi. The 50-year-old Marietta, Ga., resident last agreed last month to plead guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit bribery and cooperate with authorities.
Nagle is a former executive at Advanced Solutions for Tomorrow, a defunct company with offices in Rhode Island and Georgia that had Navy contracts. He's accused of making payments on invoices that were inflated by two subcontractors given Navy work by his firm over an 11-year period.
Two other defendants have already pleaded guilty.
