Daniel Norton, the owner of former DOD contractor Emerson Company, has been sentenced to 8 years in prison following his guilty plea on charges that he fraudulently obtained government contracts and obstructed justice.  According to the evidence at trial, Emerson Company had been debarred in 2011, but Norton used front companies to fraudulently secure purchase orders for parts to be supplied to the military.  In violation of contract Buy-American requirements, Norton filled the purchase orders by supplying non-conforming products manufactured in China, even where the contract called for a specific part from an American manufacturer.  In addition to his prison sentence, Norton was ordered to pay $2.4 million in restitution, and forfeit property valued at over $1 million.  USAO SD OH
