ST. LOUIS, MO (AP) – A southern California businessman has pleaded guilty to federal wire fraud in connection with a kickback scheme involving military aircraft parts sold to The Boeing Company.

Federal prosecutors say that William Boozer of Hacienda Heights, California, conspired with a Boeing procurement officer in St. Louis to receive confidential financial information which he used to win government purchasing contracts from Boeing worth more than $1. 5 million.

The 59-year-old owner Global Dynamics International Inc. in Santa Ana, California, pleaded guilty Friday to one count of felony wire fraud involving 16 bids submitted between November 2009 and February 2013. Global Dynamics was awarded seven Boeing purchase orders worth $116,339 for the California company.

Boeing employee Deon Anderson, who allegedly was bribed by Boozer, awaits trial along with two other defendants.

    Another shining example of corporate America and the FINE folks who run it!

    Another shining example of taxpayer waste in the military budget.

    Now this guy faces stiff fines of up to $1,000!! Then he’ll be allowed to go back to being a Boeing contractor and ripping taxpayers off right and left, only will promise to not get caught this time! People caught having two beers at a DWI roadblock will likely pay a higher fine that this crook will.

    P.S. Where do the delusional minds of folks like Mr. Sweeney get that this has anything to do with union labor, or labor at ALL for that matter? Is that REALLY the best you can, Steven? All those guns & bibles must be really taking a toll on your brain and your ability to grasp reality. This is clearly CORPORATE fraud, not union. I don’t believe the procurement officers at Boeing are union, and they certainly don’t do much LABOR!
