Watertown Man Pleads Guilty to Conspiracy Offense Related to Bribery Scheme

John H. Durham, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, today announced that KEVIN DUNN, 49, of Watertown, waived his right to be indicted and pleaded guilty yesterday in New Haven federal court to a conspiracy offense related to a bribery scheme.

According to court documents and statements made in court, DUNN is the president of Delmar Electrical Contractors in Watertown.  Javed Choudhry was employed by a construction company in the Stamford area.  Between approximately 2011 and 2014, DUNN paid between $200,000 to $300,000 in bribes to Choudhry, either directly or through another contractor, to receive approximately $21 million in contracts on construction projects in Stamford.

DUNN pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, which carries a maximum term of imprisonment of 20 years.  He is scheduled to be sentenced by U.S. District Judge Alvin W. Thompson in Hartford on April 16, 2018.

DUNN is released on a $150,000 bond.

On May 16, 2017, Choudhry, of Glastonbury, pleaded guilty to conspiracy and tax offenses stemming from this scheme.  He awaits sentencing.

This investigation is being conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Internal Revenue Service – Criminal Investigation Division.  The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Douglas P. Morabito.
