Two former Robins Air Force Base employees convicted of defrauding the federal government will probably face sentences of more than 20 years each, according to U.S. Attorney Max Wood. A federal jury on Thursday found Steve Deason and Tommy Huff guilty of bribery and of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, mail fraud or bribery, according to Wood. According to the indictment, the conspirators defrauded the government of more than $370,000. View the entire indictment. Click here. According to indictment papers, the two were accused of using government purchase cards to order personal items, and conspiring with vendors to order items that were never delivered to the base. The two men were civilian employees in Robins' maintenance department, according to court records. The conspiracy allegedly happened between 2000 and 2003, according to the indictment. According to the indictment, Deason and Huff also received gifts from the vendors involved in the conspiracy, including hunting trips to Mexico and a Harley motorcycle for Huff. Wood said Friday he expects the men will be sentenced within 60 days. Robins Air Force Base spokeswoman Faye Banks-Anderson referred all questions about the case to Wood.
