Fla. man indicted in bribery scheme at Redstone Arsenal

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - A federal grand jury in Birmingham has indicted a Florida man on bribery charges.

51-year-old Dennis Darling of Reddington Beach is accused of doling out more than $400,000 to a former official at the Space and Missile Defense Command at Redstone Arsenal.

The indictment, announced Tuesday, alleges Darling paid Michael Cantrell of Huntsville to influence the funding on certain government contracts.

U.S. Attorney Alice Martin said Cantrell pleaded guilty in January to bribery, conspiracy and tax evasion.

He admitted taking $1.6 million in kickbacks. Another former Redstone official, Douglas Harry Ennis of Athens, pleaded guilty in February to receiving $75,000 from an unnamed subcontractor.

Cantrell and Ennis await sentencing.
