Army vets plead guilty in $7M fraud case

Two former U.S. Army service members -- one of them a radiologist -- have pleaded guilty to a fraud scheme involving $7 million in military contracts at Brooke Army Medical Center (BAMC) in San Antonio.

A report in the San Antonio Express-News stated that retired Master Sgt. Lawrence Peter Fenti and Dr. Heidi Lynn Webster plan to plead guilty this week to wire fraud charges and other accusations in connection with the scheme, including bribery.

Webster and Fenti were indicted in 2013 on charges that Fenti used his position as a radiologic technologist in charge of MRI equipment purchasing at BAMC to steer contracts to Webster, a former radiologist at BAMC who ran a contracting firm after leaving the Army. The pair allegedly manufactured false and fraudulent invoices and bribed Army employees as part of the scheme, according to a complaint filed in the case.
