HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - A contractor that defrauded the government was sentenced on Tuesday to 9 years in prison.

He was ordered a forfeiture of $1,019,00. Terry will be on three years of supervised probation. 

Terry defrauded the government out of nearly $14 million. He had several contracts in the Huntsville area.

Terry faced a total of 14 charges of wire fraud, money laundering and making false statements to the Small Business Administration and on loan applications.

Terry, of Meridianville, was the sole owner of Government Technical Services before shutting down in 2008.

A US attorney said from 2002 to 2008, Terry submitted false tax returns to the Small Business Administration that he was current but never filed with the IRS.
