Former Sandia Labs employee pleads guilty in fraud case
Dec 05


Editors Note APNewsNow.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) _ A former Sandia National Laboratories worker accused of creating a phony company to defraud the New Mexico facility of more than $2 million has pleaded guilty to wire fraud and money laundering.

Prosecutors say 55-year-old Carla Sena of Santa Rosa will be sentenced at a later date.

A federal grand jury indicted Sena last month on 11 counts including wire fraud, major fraud against the U. . and money laundering.

Most of the lab's work involves research, development and maintenance of nuclear weapons.

A former procurement officer, Sena was tasked in 2010 with overseeing the bidding for a $2.3 million contract for moving services.

The indictment accused Sena of preparing a bid for a company under someone else's name and leveraged other bidders' information to ensure herself the winning bid.
