OKLAHOMA CITY– A former official at Tinker Air Force Base was convicted of conspiring to commit wire fraud.

Authorities say 70-year-old James Lee Loman, of McLoud, was convicted of conspiring to commit wire fraud, accepting bribes and participating in government contracting under an illegal conflict of interest.

From 2002 to 2006, Loman accepted large payments from an individual associated with Daytona Aerospace, Inc. in exchange for special treatment when it came time for the Air Force’s to purchase aircraft parts.

Prosecutors showed faxes from Loman’s home to the company in Florida that calculated bribe payments.

Those faxes showed the bribes added up to $838,000.

Loman could be sentenced to 20 years in prison for conspiracy, 15 years for accepting bribes and five years for being involved in federal contracting while under a personal conflict of interest.

He could also be fined up to $250,000 on each count.

Sentencing will take place in approximately 90 days.
