A federal judge sentenced a Prince George's County man yesterday to serve two years in prison for filing more than $300,000 worth of false overtime and expense claims with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
U.S. District Judge Andre M. Davis sentenced Myron Price, 45, of Accokeek to two years in prison followed by three years of supervised release for making false claims for overtime and travel expenses in connection with his work as a physical scientist for the Corps of Engineers. The judge also ordered that Price pay restitution of $379,436.55.
Price's primary duty station with the Corps of Engineers was in Baltimore. According to documents filed with his guilty plea, Price admitted that for the six-year period from 1998 to 2004, he falsified travel vouchers and overtime claims on his time and attendance reports.
