A federal grand jury eturned a superseding indictment against Jeffrey A. Boring, age 49, of Leroy, Ohio, for mail fraud, which occurred during his employment as a project manager at both The Fowler Company and ESI Inc., said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.
From on or about June 27, 2006, through on or about January 18, 2011, Boring, while employed as a project manager with The Fowler Company, created and approved fraudulent invoices from a company he created called Fairport Industrial Group. In addition, Boring instructed vendors, which provided materials and services for Boring’s personal purposes, to invoice the cost to Fowler. As a result of Boring’s fraudulent conduct, The Fowler Company sustained a loss of approximately $1,006,680.
The superseding indictment additionally charges, from on or about August 10, 2011, through on or about February 8, 2012, Boring, while employed as a project manager at ESI Inc., approved purchase orders and invoices for payment for product purportedly needed for ESI customer contracts. In fact, the superseding indictment alleges that ESI paid for product needed by Boring for contracts he had through Fairport Industrial Group with the Defense Logistics Agency.
The superseding indictment is a result of an investigation conducted by Special Agent Russell G. Csaszar with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Special Agent Brandee Kemer with the Office of the Inspector General, Defense Criminal Investigation Service. This case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Henry F. DeBaggis.
If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the court after review of factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal records, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violation.
In all cases, the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum, and in most cases it will be less than the maximum.
An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt.
A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
