U.S. Military Member Sentenced for Bribery Conspiracy

 On October 21, 2016, after pleading guilty to conspiracy to commit bribery in U.S. District Court, Fairbanks, Alaska, Sheldon J. Morgan was sentenced to four months’ imprisonment and two years’ supervised release, and was ordered to pay $37,300 in restitution, forfeit $10,020 in bribe money, and pay a special assessment of $100.

 From May 2010 until May 2011, Morgan, then a specialist in the U.S. Army, was deployed at FOB Fenty near Jalalabad, Afghanistan, which served as a hub for distribution of fuel to nearby military bases. Fuel would be brought to FOB Fenty in large trucks, downloaded for storage, and then transported to other bases as needed in smaller trucks. Morgan’s duties included assisting in overseeing the distribution of fuel to the bases.

 A translator employed by an Afghan trucking company at FOB Fenty asked Morgan to allow him to steal fuel in exchange for money. On two occasions in December 2010, Morgan arranged for the Afghan translator to steal a truckload of fuel, accomplished by inserting an extra 5,000 gallon tanker truck into an already scheduled mission without proper paperwork. In return, the translator promised Morgan $5,000 per truck. Morgan had his wife, residing in the Philippines, open an account in her name so that the Afghan could wire the money to it. Morgan and his wife used the money, totaling $10,000, during a rest and relaxation period in the Philippines. The loss the U.S. government occasioned by the conspiracy was approximately $37,300.
