Timothy S. Miller, a co-founder of a Virginia-based government contracting company, pleaded guilty Thursday to bribing two public officials working for the U.S. Navy Military Sealift Command.
According to the facts contained in the plea agreement, Miller and his business partner Dwayne A. Hardman co-founded the company to provide telecommunications support to the Military Sealift Command, the leading provider of transportation for the U.S. Navy.
Miller admitted that he bribed two officials at the Military Sealift Command for favorable official acts.
He gave $30,000 in cash to Kenny E. Toy, the former Afloat Programs Manager for the Military Sealift Command, and to Scott B. Miserendino Sr., a government contractor who worked with Toy at the Military Sealift Command Headquarters.
Miller also agreed that Hardman should give Toy and Miserendino an additional $20,000.
In 2009 alone, Miller’s company received about $2.5 million in business from the Military Sealift Command.
Miller agreed to forfeit $167,000.
He’s scheduled to be sentenced on November 7.
