A federal grand jury in Cleveland, Ohio, returned an indictment against Jeffrey A. Boring, age 48, of Leroy, Ohio, for mail fraud which occurred during his employment as a project manager with The Fowler Company which cost the company more than $1 million, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.
Boring, while employed as a project manager with The Fowler Company, created and approved fraudulent invoices, from a company he created called Fairport Industrial Group, according to the indictment. In addition, Boring instructed vendors, which provided materials and services for Boring’s personal purposes, to invoice the cost to Fowler, according to the indictment.
The conduct took place between on or about June 27, 2006, through on or about January 18, 2011. As a result of Boring’s fraudulent conduct, The Fowler Company sustained a loss of approximately $1,006,680.80, according to the indictment.
“The conduct in this case is an example of self-dealing at the expense of a local company,” Dettelbach said. “We continue to investigate fraud and work to protect the underpinnings of our economy.”
The indictment is a result of an investigation conducted by Special Agent Russell G. Csaszar with the Federal Bureau of Investigation. This case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Henry F. DeBaggis.
If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the court after review of factors unique to this case, including the defendants’ prior criminal records, if any, the defendants’ roles in the offense and the characteristics of the violation.
In all cases the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases it will be less than the maximum.
An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt.
A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
