TULSA, Okla. —A former medical technician was sentenced to 18 months in federal prison for accepting bribes in exchange for submitting fraudulent urinalysis drug tests and to submitting a falsified certification, United States Attorney Danny C. Williams Sr. with the Northern District of Oklahoma announced Friday.

William Ray Allen, 33, of Tulsa, was responsible for collecting urine specimens for random urinalysis drug testing while employed by drug treatment facility,12 & 12, Inc.

While the drug tests were supposed to be administered at random, Allen admitted to warning those selected that they were going to be tested. He also substituted his own urine or the urine of others for drug testing, and submitted falsified certifications after using the substituted urine for analysis.

Allen also knowingly shipped the fraudulent urine samples via Federal Express to the United States Probation Drug Laboratory.

Allen was indicted by a grand jury on September 4, 2014, and pleaded guilty on October 9, 2014, to four counts of honest services mail fraud and three counts of accepting a bribe.

The case was investigated by the FBI and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Joel-lyn A. McCormick on behalf of the United States.
