Va. Medical Supply Executive Gets 5 Years for Bribery

October 7, 2010

The co-owner of a medical supply company has been sentenced to five years in prison for bribery.

Innovatec Medical Corp. co-owner Todd Jenkins of Virginia Beach was sentenced Wednesday in federal court in Norfolk. Jenkins also was ordered to repay more than $550,000. He pleaded guilty in May.

According to court records, the 48-year-old Jenkins and business partner Joseph James Cafiero of Virginia Beach paid bribes of about $50,000 in exchange for receiving about $500,000 in orders placed on behalf of Portsmouth Naval Medical Center.

The 63-year-old Cafiero was sentenced last month to a five-year, four-month term after pleading guilty to similar charges.
