New Carlisle Man Convicted Following 2-Day Jury Trial

SOUTH BEND – Kevin Clinton, age 62, of New Carlisle, Indiana was convicted on 4 counts of mail fraud, announced U.S. Attorney Kirsch.

U.S. District Court Judge Robert L. Miller, Jr, presided over this two day jury trial. 

According to evidence presented at trial, Clinton was employed as the Chief Information Officer at a business in South Bend.  From about March 2012 through October 2017, he executed a scheme in which he incorporated a business and used a virtual office to submit fraudulent billings to his employer totaling over $2.2 million.  Clinton’s employer sent checks to his virtual office as payment for these “fake” services.  His employer did not know Clinton owned the business. 

Mr. Clinton’s sentencing is set for August 22, 2019. 

The case was investigated by the FBI.   The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Luke N. Reilander and Joel Gabrielse.
