Texas contractor sentenced for defrauding Pantex

AMARILLO, Texas (AP) - A former contractor at the nation's only nuclear weapons assembly and disassembly facility got a 30-month federal prison term.

A federal judge in Amarillo also ordered 57-year-old Roy David Williams to pay $168,000 in restitution for wire fraud and false claims he made to Pantex.

Williams was sentenced Tuesday on charges of wire fraud, theft of public money, 16 counts of fraudulent claims and 11 other counts. The counts relate to 28 false or counterfeit claims he submitted to the Panhandle plant from August 2007 to June 2008 for hours he and his employees didn't work.

Williams owned WAATTS Inc. in Amarillo. Prosecutors say he used bogus addresses in Tennessee as part of his scheme.

A jury found him guilty in May.
