Washington, D.C.—One of several men charged in what prosecutors say was a large and brazen contracting fraud scheme plans to plead guilty.
Babb was indicted in October along with three other men in a $20 million bribery and kickback scheme involving the awarding of government contracts.
Two of the defendants were employees of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The scheme involved phony and inflated invoices for government contracts.
Babb was the former director of contracts for the subsidiary of an Alaska native corporation with Virginia operations.
Babb's lawyer says his client's reached a tentative deal with prosecutors.
Another defendant, Michael Alexander, pleaded guilty last month.
