AIKEN - Three former employees at the Savannah River Site have been found guilty of submitting fraudulent expenses to the U.S. Department of Energy.

The Aiken Standard reports that Jeffrey Richardson, of Graniteville, pleaded guilty Thursday to fraudulently obtaining funds through an Energy Department per diem program.

Two other men were charged with submitting approximately $54,800 in fraudulent expenses to the Energy Department. George Alan Dick of Loveland, Ohio, pleaded guilty to conspiracy in August. Gary Don Erwin of Clifton, Texas, was found guilty by a jury.

All three men will be sentenced later.

the legal ripoffs at SRS

It's the legalized ripoffs at SRS that are most worrying - like $900 million per year of our tax payer money down the MOX rat hole, much of it into the pockets of the French socialist company AREVA.

I'm pretty sure these guys were'nt hurting for money either. I hope they make an example out of them through the federal court systems
