2 plead guilty to scamming BAE

September 20, 2018

Two men pleaded guilty Wednesday in federal court to stealing from a local defense contractor through a tuition assistance program.

Denaryl K. Mojet and Leamon D. Perry each pleaded guilty to one count of wire fraud for a scheme in which employees of BAE Systems submitted false requests for tuition assistance and never took college classes.

Mojet stole 35,250, according to court documents. Each was ordered to pay back the money.

Thirty-one former BAE Systems employees were charged in the case and are accused of stealing nearly $800,000; 26 have pleaded guilty.
