Two construction firm officers on hook for other charges
Citing the statute of limitations, a federal judge has thrown out two charges against two Little Rock men accused of falsely claiming a construction company they operated was headed by a service-disabled veteran in order to receive millions of dollars in government contracts.
The dismissal of two counts of major fraud against Ross Alan Hope and Mikel Kullander still leaves each of the men facing three counts of major fraud, 24 counts of wire fraud and one count of wire-fraud conspiracy. Kullander also faces an additional charge of making a false statement. They are set to be tried by a federal jury beginning Sept. 5.
