UPDATE: Former BVU CEO Enters Guilty Plea in Federal Court
Federal authorities finally lasso former Bristol, Virginia Utilities CEO Wes Rosenbalm on criminal charges. Under a plea deal, Rosenbalm appeared in court in Abingdon, admitting to lining his own pockets by evading income taxes and soliciting "extravagant" ballgame tickets, alcohol, dinners and party supplies for employees, from vendors in business with BVU as part of a conspiracy to commit federal grant program fraud. He's agreed to pay $150,000 in restitution to BVU for taxes and penalties owed by the public utility as a result of his conduct. Prosecutor Zack Lee on whether there will be others charged: "This is an ongoing investigation, I'm not going to comment on whether there are other targets." Rosembalm faces up to five years in prison at sentencing Oct. 8th. Todd Edwards of South Carolina, was sentenced to two years in prison for his part in the million dollar BVU fiber optic development fraud and kickback scheme. His attorney, Tom Bondurant, says Edwards was the one who fingered Rosenbalm at the top of “a culture of corruption." He went on to say, "For BVU, a job well done on time and under budget was never enough. Executives always demanded a little something extra on the top."
