Scheming Contractor Nailed By Feds

After hammering for justice, a scheming government contractor got hammered by justice.

Milton Cleve Collins, 54, pleaded guilty to one count of major fraud against the United States Thursday before U.S. District Judge John T. Fowlkes, Jr.

Collins had a $1.5 million federal government contract to replace the roof and the air conditioning system at the Ed Jones Federal Courthouse and Post Office in Jackson, Tenn.
