OKLAHOMA CITY — A former manager at Tinker Air Force Base has been convicted on federal bribery, conspiracy and other charges.
US Attorney Sanford Coats says 70-year-old James Lee Loman was convicted Thursday in US District Court in Oklahoma City. An attorney for Loman did not return an after-hours phone call for comment.
Prosecutors say Loman was an item manager at the base and purchased replacement parts for Air Force aircraft. Prosecutors say Loman accepted more than $800,000 in bribes in return for purchasing the parts from a supplier in Florida.
The federal indictment charging Loman refers only to a co-conspirator who is not identified.
Coats says Loman will be sentenced in about three months and faces up to 40 years in prison.
