SAN ANTONIO – A former civilian employee at Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph was sentenced to prison for a multimillion-dollar fraud scheme, according to federal authorities.

Keith Alan Seguin, 57, was sentenced on Monday to 36 months in prison with one year of supervised release for the charge of making a false income tax return, and 188 months in prison and three years of supervised release for the charge of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office states. The sentences will run concurrently.

According to court documents, Seguin was a civilian employee for the Air Force and his job called for soliciting and accepting orders for flight simulator technology and support.

Authorities said he used his position to steer contracts to software engineering company QuantaDyn Corporation, who paid Seguin more than $2.3 million in cash and bribes. In return, QuantaDyn received $100 million in work on Air Force projects.

Prosecutors say the scheme spanned from 2006 until 2018. Seguin pleaded guilty in June 2021.

Seguin was also ordered to pay $736,618 in restitution to the IRS and $38.7 million in restitution to the Air Force, Army and General Services Administration. He must also forfeit the $2.3 million from bribe money.

“Government employees who collude with dishonest contractors to defraud the integrity of a government contracting system for personal gain will not be tolerated,” Jaime Esparza, U.S. Attorney in the Western District of Texas, said in the release. “It removes legitimate businesses from competition and harms the American taxpayer. It harms our nation’s warfighters by inflating the cost to the Government, thereby reducing the materials and training available to our service members. This office will continue to work with our law enforcement partners to bring those offenders to justice.”
