Man Pleads Guilty to Kickback Scheme at John Cochran VA Medial Center

ST. LOUIS (KTRS) An Indiana man has pleaded guilty to his role in a kickback scheme that ran for three years and netted more than a quarter of a million dollars while he supervised the HVAC shop and the John Cochran Veterans Administration Medical Center in St. Louis. 43-year-old Tony Pedretti appeared before Judge Audrey Fleissig in St. Louis. Judge Fleissig accepted his plea and set his sentencing for September 7. According to the plea agreement, Pedretti conspired with Scott Geary, David Graham and others to collect kickbacks for work done at the HVAC shop.
In all, Pedretti admitted that more than $270,000 in work was let by him in the kickback scheme. Scott Geary has already pleaded guilty to his role in the scheme and awaits sentencing. Graham is a co-defendant with Pedretti and is awaiting trial of his case. Pedretti faces up to five years imprisonment and a fine of up to $250,000 for his conspiracy conviction.
