Christopher M. Hill, 47, of Lusby, Maryland, has been sentenced to 30 months in prison for embezzling $613,057.41 from the US Navy where he had been employed as a civilian employee responsible for its scrap metal recycling program.  According to prosecutors, over a period of more than six years, from January 2004 through April 2010, hill siphoned funds from the Navy's recycling program by depositing remittance checks into his own accounts.  Hill, who was also charged with tax evasion, plead guilty last August and was ordered to pay full restitution to the Navy as well as $134,795.22 to the IRS for back taxes on the ill-gotten gains.
