Army Major Admits Bribery
Los Angeles Times

Pg. 13


An Army major pleaded guilty to bribery charges and admitted he had a $5.8-million deal to steer military contracts for bottled water and other supplies to favored companies.
The guilty plea by Maj. James Momon Jr. is the latest development in one of the Justice Department's largest military contracting fraud investigations.
Momon, of Virginia, served as a contracting officer in Kuwait in 2005 and 2006. He succeeded Maj. John C. Cockerham, who pleaded guilty in January to money-laundering as part of a $9-million bribery scheme involving bottled water contracts.
Momon pleaded guilty to two counts of bribery and one count of conspiracy. Bribery carries a penalty of up to 15 years in prison, conspiracy up to five years.
