Iowa woman sentenced for false invoices overcharging state

Posted: Updated:

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - An officer for a contractor who admitted falsifying and submitting invoices that resulted in nearly $808,000 in overcharges to the Iowa Transportation Department has been sentenced to supervised release.

Federal prosecutors say 31-year-old Jenna Wilson, of Sergeant Bluff, was sentence Friday in Sioux City's federal courthouse. In addition to two years' supervised release, she was ordered to pay a nearly $34,500 fine.

Court records say Wilson raised the per-unit price on expanded polystyrene fill used in the 2016 reconstruction of the Interstate 29 interchange at Salix. The polystyrene fill was properly invoiced by its original supplier.

Wilson pleaded guilty in August to making false statements.
