PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A Georgia man who pleaded guilty for his role in an $18 million kickback scheme that targeted the U.S. Navy has been sentenced to three years of probation.
Patrick Barry Nagle, of Marietta, Georgia, was sentenced Friday.
U.S. District Judge Mary Lisi said she gave him a substantially lighter sentence than called for under the sentencing guidelines because he had extensively aided the government in its investigation into the scheme.
Nagle was CFO of Georgia-based Navy contractor Advanced Solutions for Tomorrow, or ASFT, that gave kickbacks to a civilian Navy employee and others.
ASFT also had offices in Middletown. It went out of business after the scandal came to light in 2011.
Six people have pleaded guilty in the scheme. Nagle is the third person to be sentenced.
