An employee who used to work for a Stamford construction and development firm was sentenced to eight months in prison, four months of home confinement and three years of supervision after pleading guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud and filing a false tax return, the Fairfield County Business Journal reported. Javed Choudhry, who worked for Building and Land Technology, got between $250,000 and $500,000 in “cash kickbacks” from contractors between 2011 and 2014 after he sent millions of dollars in Stamford construction project contracts their way, according to the outlet. BLT lost millions in the process, the outlet reported, noting that Choudhry could have gotten up to 20 years in prison for the conspiracy to commit wire fraud count. [FBJ]
