  • Northern District of Ohio (216) 622-3600

A Leroy Township man was sentenced to nearly six years in prison for fraud that occurred during his employment as a manager with the Fowler Company, which cost the company nearly $1 million, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.

Jeffrey A. Boring, 49, previously pleaded guilty to five counts of mail fraud. U.S. Judge Sara Lioi sentenced him to 71 months in prison and ordered him to pay $978,810 in restitution.

Boring, while employed as a project manager with the Fowler Company, created and approved fraudulent invoices from a company he created called Fairport Industrial Group. Additionally, Boring instructed vendors, who provided materials and services for Boring’s personal purposes, to invoice the cost to Fowler, according to court documents.

The conduct took place between on or about June 27, 2006, through on or about January 18, 2011.

This case was being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Henry F. DeBaggis following an investigation by the Cleveland Field Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
