Former Camden Town Manager Sentenced For Kickback Scheme

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, Del. - The former Town Manager of a local town has been sentenced, after his role in a kickback scheme.

On Tuesday, James Plumley, the former Town Manager of Camden, Delaware, was sentenced to 24 months in prison, for his role in a kickback scheme. That scheme was reportedly to defraud the State of Delaware of over $200,000 between 2004 and 2008. Plumley was also ordered to repay more than $204,000 to the State of Delaware.

Before Plumley was the Camden Town Manager, he helped pick qualified contractors to repair and maintain roofs at state-owned facilities for the State of Delaware's Division of Facilities Management, while employed at Roofing Resources, Inc.. Plumley would apparently use this position to steer those contracts to his co-defendant, contractor William P. Mahon, who would reportedly inflate his project bids, and deposit that amount into Plumley's checking account as a kickback. The FBI was able to identify over $204,000 in kickbacks that Plumley received from Mahon in that 4 year period.

Charles M. Oberly, III, United States Attorney for the District of Delaware said, "This is an example of our commitment to work tirelessly with our law enforcement partners to investigate and prosecute individuals who criminally exploit positions of trust within our community. This is especially true when individuals abuse the government's trust for their own benefit. Hopefully, this prison sentence will serve as a deterrent to others who elevate their own benefit above the duty they owe to the citizens of Delaware."

FBI Baltimore Division Special Agent in Charge Stephen Vogt said "Tax payers trust their tax money will be used wisely, and not stuffed into the pockets of corrupt. The reason people who serve governments are held to a higher standard is because they have access to incredible power and influence. It can't be abused, and the FBI and U.S. Attorney's Office won't let it be."
