Timothy Francis Cashman, a building manager for the General Services Administration, was sentenced to 16 months in custody today (October 23) for taking bribes and stealing government property.
As an overseer of property at the Otay Mesa, San Ysidro, and Tecate ports of entry, Cashman used his government position for personal enrichment over a number of years. For example, he demanded $10,000 in cash and thousands of dollars in renovation services to steer a contract to one company. He got six checks for $42,000 in another case.
In addition to taking bribes, he obtained thousands of dollars' worth of government building materials, which he used or sold.
