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.

Interesting. Why am I just learning about this? I must have missed all the previous reports...

Thanks, Don. Are there any guesses regarding his total take?

eastlaker: I don't know the total number. He has been ordered to pay $50,000 and change in restitution. Best, Don Bauder

Do we know the name of that "one Company" to which he was steering contracts?

Wabbitsd: He demanded $10,000 and thousands of dollars worth of construction and renovation services from government contractor Hugo Alonso Inc. in exchange for favorable treatment on contracts. Cashman also demanded that Hugo Alonso pay another government contractor $120,000 in exchange for Hugo Alonso getting another contract. Best, Don Bauder
