Update On Military Bribery Scheme Case: Maine Man Pleads Guilty

Maurice Henry Subilia, 64, of Kennebunk, Maine, has agreed to plead guilty in a bribery scheme that bilked the government out of as much as $7 million, according to prosecutors. Subilia is the former president of Fiber Materials Inc. in Biddeford, Maine who is charged with conspiring with Michael Cantrell and Douglas Ennis, two former officials of the US Army Space and Missile Defense Command in Huntsville, Alabama, by paying bribes in exchange for contracts and financing steered toward Lealagi, Inc. and Sage Technologies, entities independently controlled by Subilia and unrelated to Fiber Materials. The scheme went on between 2000 and 2007, according to prosecutors. Both Messrs. Cantrell and Ennis have pleaded guilty and are awaiting sentencing in Alabama. We note that Subilia was previously found guilty in 1995 with exporting restricted missile technology to India.

Please note: we incorrectly related Fiber Materials with Lealagi and Sage and apologize for any confusion.
