According to the government complaint, Cashman in 2007 got his home painted and windows installed in exchange for steering hundreds of thousands of dollars of contracts to an unnamed co-conspirator. The next year, he got $42,000 for awarding a contract to another unnamed co-conspirator.
Cashman also schemed with others to steal thousands of dollars worth of copper and aluminum panels from the Otay Mesa port of entry. He got a portion of the proceeds, says the federal government.
