SAN ANTONIO - A former Texas co-owner of a development company has been sentenced to 36 months in prison for submitting nearly $1.3 million in fake invoices for Iraq reconstruction.
Prosecutors in San Antonio say 33-year-old Jill Ann Charpia in August pleaded guilty to falsifying official documents.
The former San Antonio woman was sentenced Thursday in connection with fabricated documents and forged signatures related to Iraq reconstruction government contracts. She must also pay at least $920,000 in restitution.
Charpia during 2008 and 2009 co-owned Sourcing Specialist LLC, a privately owned firm that contracted with the U.S. government to help develop business opportunities in Iraq.
Investigators say Charpia signed and submitted false invoices for mobilization costs, three armored vehicles and the rental of two villas in Baghdad.
