FORMER ARMY CAPTAIN GETS TEN YEARS
© 2011 MilitaryCorruption.com
Ex-Army CPT Sidharth "Tony" Handa thought he had a good deal going when he was stationed in Afghanistan as contract officer with the Kunar Province Reconstruction Team.
DEFRAUDING THE TAXPAYERS
Borrowing a line from Flip Wilson's THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT, Handa's defense attorney tried to gain sympathy for his client by claiming the captain was "enticed" into the illegal activity by his interpreter, who seduced him saying "everybody does this over here."
ONLY ONE IN TEN GET CAUGHT
Instead of making major, Handa will serve the next ten years in federal prison.
