New Carlisle Man Convicted At Trial Sentenced To Prison And Ordered To Pay $2,271,720.05 In Restitution

SOUTH BEND – Kevin Clinton, age 62, of New Carlisle, Indiana, was sentenced before U.S. District Court Judge Robert L. Miller, Jr, after being convicted on 4 counts of mail fraud during a 2-day trial in May 2019, announced U.S. Attorney Kirsch.

Clinton was sentenced to 71 months in prison and ordered to pay $2,271,720.05 in restitution. 

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 to defraud his employer. He incorporated a separate business called Innovation Services that supposedly provided information-technology services to his employer, and he used a virtual office to submit fraudulent billings to his employer totaling over $2.2 million. Clinton’s employer sent checks to the virtual office as payment for fake services claimed in the fraudulent billings. At the time, his employer did not know Clinton owned the sham business. 

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