A former materials coordinator at the Hanford nuclear reservation has been sentenced to three years probation for arranging supply orders to be filled by a company his wife owned.
Gregory Detloff pleaded in U.S. District Court in Richland to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud. Judge Rosanna Malouf Peterson on Wednesday ordered him to repay the U.S. Department of Energy $150,000 and to perform 240 hours of community service. His probation includes 90 days of home confinement.
The Tri-City Herald reports that court records show Detloff arranged more than 280 Hanford materials orders to be filled by Detloff Industrial, a wholesale supplier which his wife operated out of their home.
More than a dozen people came to court to support Detloff.
