ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Jacqueline Green-Morris, 41, of Woodbridge, was sentenced today to 63 months in prison for her role in a money laundering conspiracy which resulted in a loss of $4.1 million.
Green-Morris pleaded guilty on Aug. 30, 2016. According to court documents, Green-Morris was employed as a Quality Analyst/Training Manager for a federal government contractor based in Virginia.
As part of her duties, Green-Morris paid invoices submitted by outside vendors for employee training and testing. In 2012, Green-Morris conspired with Amit Chaudhry, owner of an Ashburn based business, to submit inflated and fraudulent invoices for payment of information technology training and professional certification courses that were never provided.
Green-Morris and the co-conspirator also created numerous “shell” companies and opened bank accounts in the names of the “shell” companies to facilitate the movement of the proceeds of the fraudulent payments through PayPal.
Green-Morris used additional bank accounts held in the names of various entities she controlled, including Jacquie Green Music LLC and Sweet Lane Entertainment, companies used to facilitate her gospel singing career.
The amount of loss in this case was at least $4.1 million and Green-Morris used the proceeds to purchase a home in Woodbridge, travel, gamble and purchase luxury items for herself and others.
