TRENTON, New Jersey – An Army Reserve lieutenant colonel from New Jersey has pleaded guilty to being part of a scheme involving Iraqi reconstruction contracts.
Debra Harrison on Monday admitted her involvement in a bid-rigging scam that steered millions of dollars from an Iraqi rebuilding fund to a contractor in exchange for cash, luxury cars and jewelry.
Prosecutors say the 50-year-old Harrison admitted receiving a Cadillac Escalade from a contractor and more than $300,000 to improve her Trenton home.
Harrison faces up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine when she is sentenced Nov. 19.
It was not immediately known who was defending Harrison.
