Army Lieutenant Colonel Pleads Guilty to Participating in Wire Fraud Scheme Arising out of Al-Hillah, Iraq

WASHINGTON – Debra Harrison, a lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army Reserves, pleaded guilty today to honest services wire fraud in connection with a scheme to defraud the Coalition Provisional Authority - South Central Region (CPA-SC) in Al-Hillah, Iraq, announced Acting Assistant Attorney General Matthew Friedrich of the Criminal Division.

Harrison, 50, of Trenton, N.J., entered her guilty plea today before the Honorable Mary L. Cooper at the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey, Trenton Division. At the plea hearing, Harrison admitted that in August 2004 she received a Cadillac Escalade from Philip Bloom, a contractor at the CPA-SC. The Escalade was financed through a series of wire transfer payments, which form the basis of the wire fraud charge. Harrison also admitted that she took more than $300,000 from the CPA-SC while deployed there and that she used some of the stolen money to make improvements at her home. Harrison also admitted that in July 2004 she helped to move unregistered firearms from a hotel in North Carolina to the home of Robert Stein, a co-conspirator who worked with Harrison at the CPA-SC.

Harrison’s sentencing is scheduled for Nov. 19, 2008. Harrison faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison, a three year term of supervised release and a fine of $250,000.

On Jan. 29, 2007, co-conspirator Robert Stein was sentenced to nine years in prison for related charges of conspiracy, bribery and money laundering, as well as weapons possession charges, for his role in the same scheme. Stein was also ordered to forfeit $3.6 million for his role in the bribery and money laundering scheme.

On Feb.16, 2007, co-conspirator Philip Bloom was sentenced to 46 months in prison for related charges of conspiracy, bribery and money laundering for his role in the scheme. Bloom was also ordered to forfeit $3.6 million for his role in the bribery and money laundering scheme.

On June 25, 2007, Lt. Col. Bruce Hopfengardner was sentenced to 21 months in prison for conspiracy and money laundering related to this scheme. Hopfengardner was also ordered to forfeit $144,500.

On Feb. 1, 2007, Col. Curtis Whiteford, Lt. Col. Michael Wheeler, and civilians Seymour Morris Jr. and William Driver were charged in a 25-count indictment for related charges including conspiracy, bribery and money laundering in connection with this scheme. Trial in this case is scheduled to begin Sept. 9, 2008, in Trenton.

These cases are being prosecuted by Trial Attorneys Ann C. Brickley and John P. Pearson of the Criminal Division’s Public Integrity Section, headed by Section Chief William M. Welch II. The cases are being investigated by the Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation, Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement at the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI-Washington Field Office.

Once again: Lt. Col. Harrison was cleared of all charges and then sent to Kuwait for her last tour before retiring with an honorable discharge and benefits. Some of her hacker enemies ought to be able to find this out there somewhere because she and her family and friends do not really care to strain their brains or waste their time refuting goofs and their allegations, accusations and whines. With their bitchin', they did not mention that Major Harrison and her black tailgunner lieutenant friend were wounded in a roadside ambush, Major Harrison being awarded a Purple Heart to go with her Bronze Star; a Romanian security guard died beside her in the front seat. This was the second ambush. Major Harrison, also a Registered Nurse, was with Civil Affairs over there, setting up Iraqi women's health clinics while armed and in uniform, exposing their hair. The mean Muslim men were not their friends. Those who are so pissed seem to ignore or dismiss this, having never worn a uniform.

I am amazed that the day after the CPA gets grilled that indictments are brought against these individuals accused. What a coincidence.

I know two of the people indicted. Lt Col Debra Harrison is my sister, and her husband William Driver.

She is a decorated officer. She earned her Purple Heart. She was ambushed twice. The second time after her tour in Iraq ended, and she extended.

I do know that my sister did not know that anything was wrong at CPA-SC. She was only there a couple of months at the end as the CPA shut down. She made the mistake of extending her service to help with that process.

Debra broke inside after her second ambush. She was with strangers. She couldn't sleep. She took every pill, and drank every drop of alcohol she could get. She worked to numb herself. She wanted to die, but not in Iraq.

I do know that she was abandoned by the United States when she was told to find her own way home. She received an email telling her there was no room for her on the cargo plane for her return. There was room for every CPA person scheduled to leave from Bagdad, but not my sister and four other soldiers. Yet, part of the indictment against her says she used a plane ticket purchased with CPA money. She did not purchase that ticket, but she did use it. It was her only way out, and she was instructed to use that ticket.

It was so dangerous at that time that the Department of Justice Auditors were too afraid to come to Hillah to go through the papers. They told my sister to bring it all to them in the safety of the Green Zone. No one reported to my sister, and she had no one to report to. The Colonel in charge, Michael Whitehead, was gone, the Comptroller, Robert Stein, was gone. How in the world was she to get that huge amount of information to Baghdad from Hillah by herself. She couldn't do it.

She suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and receives treatment for that disorder through the VA.

Hold off on any criticism of any soldier accused in this mess. I know for a fact that the accusations against my sister are false. No matter what the Department of Justice asserts. Keep in mind, they are the same people who vetted Robert J Stein to be in carge of the CPA-SC operation. My sister certainly didn't know that the man who told her what to do was a convicted felon.

These guys in their double breasted suits and shiny black shoes need to get a reality check.
What hypocracy!

It is true. The jerk is lying! She spent 30 months in jail and had to pay tens of thousands of dollars in rest. Her husband Bill was the one running the scam. All over the news.

She was sentenced and fined. It is on the United States Department of Justice Government Website and has been for 4 years now. That is plenty,of time o post a correction if there was an error and Leon claims. She was convicted, sentenced, and pressed for restitution. Leon Harrison loses again. It is confirmed in the New York Times and Washington Post.
