A federal grand jury has indicted a U.S. veteran in Belton, partially disabled in service to his country, on charges tied to a $40 million government contract fraud.
Joseph David Dial Jr., 52, faces charges tied to the contract obtained through a program for service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses. The 18-page indictment describes a scheme that involved others but does not identify them by name.
Dial formed United Medical Design Builders LLC with another person in 2008, said an announcement by U.S. Attorney General Tom Beall, but the business was not legitimately eligible to win the contract.
