Ohio man faces federal mail, wire fraud charges


NEW ORLEANS — Federal prosecutors say a 52-year-old man has been charged with mail and wire fraud.

U.S. Attorney Kenneth A. Polite says Howard Gregor, of Attica, Ohio, was charged Wednesday in a two-count bill of information.

According to court documents, from November 2008 to April 2013 Gregor was a sales account manager for a New Orleans-based company that manufactures conveyor belts. His job required him to travel and incur reimbursable business-related expenses.

Polite said in a news release that Gregor devised a scheme to defraud his employer by creating inflated and fictitious items to put on his expense report for which the company paid him nearly $300,000 in expenses that he didn't actually incur.

If convicted, Gregor faces up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
