Local military contractor pleads guilty to defrauding Government
A military contractor formerly from Niceville has pleaded guilty to defrauding the Government.
John Sims was charged in a 34-count federal indictment last August.
He pleaded guilty to five charges, including bribery, conspiracy, and theft of Government property.
Prosecutors say Sims was a civilian employee of the Air Force and took bribes from two contractors in exchange for steering contracts their way.
He could face prison time, fines, and restitution payments.
