OWNER OF ORANGE COUNTY BUSINESS FOUND GUILTY OF SELLING UNAPPROVED AIRCRAFT PARTS TO THE UNITED STATES AIR FORCE

            A Canadian business man who owns an Orange County, California aircraft parts brokerage company was convicted by a federal jury sitting in Santa Ana, California on two felony counts arising from his sale of unapproved aircraft parts to the U.S. military. Michael Joseph Murphy, 34, was found guilty yesterday afternoon on both counts of the indictment which charged him with making a false claim to the United States, and submitting a false statement to the Department of Defense.

            The contract at issue in the case called for Primetech, Murphy's business located in Huntington Beach, to deliver vane actuation arms to the United States Air Force. The vane arms are used by the Air Force in its C-5 transport plane. The contract required that the parts come from the original manufacturer, General Electric, or from two other previously certified and approved sources. Under the contract, Primetech would receive $99,560.

            At trial, the evidence showed that instead of providing the specified parts, Murphy provided parts that were not only from an unapproved source, but had previously been rejected by the U.S. Air Force. While the contract required that the parts be inspected by a government representative, Murphy shipped the parts before any inspection could be conducted. After shipping the parts, Murphy billed the government approximately $100,000.

            When the Department of Defense contacted Murphy to advise him that the parts had to be inspected, and a form signed by a government inspector, the evidence established that Murphy signed the form himself, and returned it to the government. Primetech was ultimately paid $99,560 on the contract, and has not returned the money. A vast majority of the unapproved parts have been quarantined.

            Murphy remains free on a $250,000 bond. His sentencing is scheduled for May 23, 2005. Murphy faces a statutory maximum penalty of 10 years in federal prison and fines of up to $500,000.

            This case is the result of an investigation by the Defense Criminal Investigative Service and the Air Force Office of Special Investigations.

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Jon Cohen debarred for this issue / Cohen convicted DRUG DEALER

AUTHOR: Paul Orloff, Esquire - (USA)

JONATHAN SCOTT COHEN was an employee with Primetech Corporation who was debarred by the Federal Government because of this issue.  Choen is a known drug user and convicted  drug dealer.  His partner Ronald L Moore is a convicted armed robber and was dishonorably discharged from the United States Air Force .  It was also proven that both Cohen Moore and Cohen's stepfather converted aircraft parts manufactured for Department of Defence.  Cohen, Moore and Cohen's stepfather Harvey Modlin took computers, the sequil database and Secure U.S. Government Techdata to start their own company while on the Primetech Payroll.  Primetech had a flawless record of  quality shipments to the United States Department of Defence until Cohen, Modlin, Moore and Jimmy Ha set them up.  During the 23 day trial the judge asked Jimmy Ha to STOP lying.  The Cohen's and their other conspiritors took, U.S Goverment Mylars, aircraft parts, raw materal, computers, software and everything else they could to start their own company when on Primetech's payroll.

Cohen's father Gerry Cohen committed bankruptcy fraud with his attorney David Habberbush.

He has also comitted medicare fraud.  In more recent times Cohen created a scheme to RIPOFF another defence contractor with Ronald L. Moore as his front man.  They are now under federal investigation for extortion when their attorney Andrew Duff Weiss had an unauthorized exemployee of the company sign a settlement under duress.  The employee told Weiss he no longer worked for the company and had no authority to bind the corporation.  Weiss had him sign the settlement agreement knowing this he continued to use this fraudlent document in state and federal court cases.  The California State Bar, FEDERAL & STATE law enforcement are currently gathering evidence on this criminal orginazation including attronys Habberbush and Weiss.  Sometimes truth is stranger then fiction.  Rumors are they have even payed of state and federal judges to evate justice.
