It took a federal jury in Alabama less than a day to convict a former US Army major and his wife of 22 counts of bribery, fraud, conspiracy and money-laundering on Tuesday.

Maj. Eddie Pressley and his wife Eurica, of Harvest, Ala., were accused of accepting $2.8 million in bribes between 2004 and 2006. Now, each faces a maximum sentence of 75 years in prison, US officials said.

The case against the Pressleys arose from a corruption probe focusing on , a US military base in Kuwait. The Pressleys were the first people in the case to go to trial.

Previously, 14 people had pleaded guilty to a mix of charges. Eight were former officers or enlisted personnel.

HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) – A jury found a Harvest couple guilty of 22 counts of bribery Tuesday.

U.S. Army Major Eddie Pressley and his wife Eurica took $2.8 million in bribes from a civilian defense contractor in exchange for $9.3 million in Department of Defense contracts in Iraq and Kuwait.

Those included deals for bottled water and security fencing in Iraq and Kuwait.

The couple bought cars, property and homes with the money, and set up bank accounts to launder the payoffs in Dubai, the Caymans and in Madison. Please see the original here
