The owner of two defense contracting firms, Tico Manufacturing Inc. (TICO) and Military and Commercial Spares Inc. (MCS), has been sentenced to 3 years in prison and ordered to pay $8 million in restitution for conspiring to defraud the Department of Defense.  Between 2011 and 2015, Roger Sobrado fraudulently obtained DoD contracts by claiming that conforming parts for critical military equipment, including fighter jets and helicopters, would be supplied through authorized manufacturers.  Instead, Sobrado supplied non-conforming parts through non-authorized manufacturers, recruited family members to commit the same fraud, and collected DoD payments from his family members.  Additionally, he failed to report almost half of his taxable income for three years, causing the United States to lose a total of $509,962.  USAO NJ
