Connecticut Man Pleads Guilty To Conspiracy And Bribery

By Tiffany Williams –

On Monday at the United States District Court in Boston, Floyd Young, 50, of Shelton, CT. pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy and three counts of bribery concerning programs receiving federal funds.

During his employment in facility maintenance at three collegiate institutions, including one in Massachusetts, Young steered contracts for construction, repair, maintenance, and other work for those collegiate institutions to favored contractors who paid him bribes, typically in the amount of 15% of the contract.

The contractors would inflate the amount of the invoices submitted to the collegiate institutions in order to be repaid the cost of the bribe payment made to Young.

U.S. District Court Judge Mark G. Mastroianni scheduled sentencing for Young to be on Feb. 1, 2021.
