Contractor Gets 5 Years in Jail in Tulsa Bribery Case

An Oklahoma contractor, Max E. Wolf, will serve four years and nine months in jail for bribing a government employee to approve inflated invoices on City of Tulsa public works projects. Wolf pleaded guilty in September 2009 and was sentenced on December 14, 2009.

Harlan Eugene Yocham of Yocham Enterprises was also sentenced to prison for paying a $7,000 bribe to the same Tulsa employee to approve a "fraudulent and inflated" invoice. Yocham will serve five month in prison and then another five months of home detention.
