A Huntsville contractor expects to plead guilty to federal charges that she created false documents to obstruct an Army audit, federal prosecutors said Tuesday.
Teresa Mayberry, 54, is charged with obstruction of a federal audit.
Prosecutors said Tuesday that Mayberry created the fake documents to obstruct a 2012 audit of an Army contract to purchase parts for Mi-17 helicopters. The charges stem from a DOD investigation into $8 million worth of contracts on overhauls and spare parts to determine whether the Army paid a reasonable price, whether the parts were needed and whether correct procedures were followed.
Mayberry, who was part of implementing the parts contract, is accused of creating a backdated document with her signature that falsely represented that price negotiations took place on parts purchases.
Prosecutors said Mayberry has filed a document indicating she intends to plead guilty to the charge, which has a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
