Three indicted in contract cases

Three Okaloosa County, Fla., men were indicted on federal charges for violations committed while working at or contracting with the Air Force Research Laboratory on Eglin Air Force Base. The indictment claims one of the three, while employed as a senior engineer at the federal lab, steered programs to Schaller Engineering, or SEI, in which he had a financial interest. The three are also accused of trying to cover up the financial interests. (Source: WEAR-TV, Northwest Florida Daily News, 02/07/09)
