Coppin State Employee Charged with Procurement Fraud
Randallstown man faces three counts
Baltimore, MD (February 19, 2014) - Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler announced today that former Coppin State University employee Jerry Lamont Stamper, 59, of Randallstown, has been charged in Baltimore City Circuit Court with three counts of procurement fraud. An arraignment is set for March 3.
The charges allege that on September 2, 2008, May 5, 2009 and March 30, 2010, Stamper falsified and suppressed material facts in connection with procurements made through the University, which resulted in his personal gain.
Procurement fraud is a felony punishable by five years incarceration and/or a fine of up to $20,000. The investigation was conducted by the Attorney General's Criminal Division and the Maryland State Police following an initial referral from the University System of Maryland Internal Auditors.
A criminal charge is merely an accusation of wrongdoing and the defendant is presumed innocent unless the State proves his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
