17 August 2011 - A retired US Army colonel was sentenced on Tuesday to 12 months in prison for her role in a bribery scheme linked to the awarding of Iraq war contracts, the Department of Justice announced.
Levonda Selph, 57, was also sentenced to three years of supervised release and ordered to pay both a $5,000 fine and $9,000 in restitution, the DOJ said in a statement.
In 2005, Selph -- then a lieutenant colonel -- served as the chair of a selection board for a $12 million contract to build and operate several Department of Defense warehouses in Iraq, the statement said.
She accepted fraudulent bids from a "co-conspirator contracting firm" and helped the firm win the bid.
According to court documents, Selph received a vacation to Thailand and $9,000 worth of other gifts for her role in the scheme.
She pleaded guilty in June 2008 to one count of bribery and one count of conspiracy. read more>>>
