GREENBELT, Md. (WUSA9) -- A thirty-five-year-old Clinton woman was sentenced Monday to 18 months in prison for a $2.3 million government contract fraud scheme, the United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein announced.
In addition to the 18 months in prison, Larayne Whitehead, 35, of Clinton, Md. will have three years of supervised release for "conspiring to commit wire fraud in connection with a scheme to defraud businesses which supplied goods under government contracts," officials said.
An order was placed that Whitehead forfeit a total of $2,393,579 along with a vehicle.
Whitehead was involved in the fraud scheme, along with her co-conspirators between December 2007 and May 2013, according to the plea agreement.
At least 15 businesses in the states of Maryland, Delaware, Georgia, Nevada, North Carolina, and Tennessee were used in the scheme, authorities said.
