Former Asphalt Exec Pleads Guilty to Overbilling on Illinois Projects
An Illinois road builder agreed Tuesday to pay $500,000 to the federal government and one of the firm’s former officers pleaded guilty to mail fraud for overbilling on asphalt products delivered to federally funded state projects. The firm, Curran Contracting Inc. of Crystal Lake, has been under investigation for four years as a result of a former employee who filed a whistleblower lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Chicago.
As part of the lawsuit, the firm paid the state a $750,000 settlement in 2002 for overbilling the state on Chicago-area resurfacing projects. For the complete story, click here.
