Contractor in El Paso receives sentencing for committing fraud against federal correctional institutions – KVIA

An El Pasoan named Jack McCager Kidd, aged 72, has been sentenced to 24 months in federal prison and fined $5,000 for deceiving two correctional institutions.

According to federal prosecutors, Kidd, the owner of a company that contracted with the Bureau of Prisons, has been accused of fraudulent activities. He allegedly agreed to construct two gas pipelines to prisons located in Pennsylvania and Alabama. However, he submitted false invoices to the institutions, claiming that more natural gas was delivered than what was actually supplied. The court documents further reveal that Kidd deliberately withheld information related to the quantity of natural gas delivered and how he arrived at his billing rates, even though the prisons requested this information.

On August 30, 2023, Kidd pleaded guilty to one count of wire fraud after his arrest by federal agents on October 28, 2021. At the time of his arrest, he was facing 72 counts. As part of his plea agreement, Kidd has been ordered to pay $11,397,374 in restitution.
