The District Attorney involved in the matter described this as a case of public corruption, where city workers were scheming with private businesses to defraud the city. The specific felony charges that he pled guilty to are; submitting false invoices to government agencies, submitting false insurance claims, forging and altering requests for payment, and theft of public funds.
