Civil Settlement Ends Campaign Contribution Case

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. - Delaware prosecutors have agreed not to seek criminal charges against a politically connected businessman accused of making illegal campaign contributions.
    
Prosecutors filed a civil complaint and consent order Tuesday against 39-year-old Kemal Erkan, the CEO of United Medical LLC. He's accused of making six contributions of $250 each to a statewide candidate in the names of other individuals and then reimbursing six United Medical employees for contributions they purportedly made.
    
In a deal with prosecutors, Erkan and his company must pay $7,500 each by Friday, and Erkan must perform 100 hours of community service.
    
According to a United Medical website, Erkan served on Gov. Jack Markell's transition committee and on finance committees for Markell, Sen. Chris Coons and Rep. John Carney.
    
Erkan's attorney did not immediately return a telephone message.
