Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Brent Roger Wilkes, an American entrepreneur, defense contractor, civic leader and philanthropist. Wilkes became well known for his involvement with the Duke Cunningham defense contracting scandal and was indicted for his involvement in this scandal on February 13, 2007. He was indicted on new charges which superseded the previous ones on May 10, 2007. Wilkes was convicted on all 13 counts on November 5, 2007. On March 27, 2008 the Court of Appeals ordered him released on bail pending appeal finding in part "that the appeal raises a 'substantial question' of law or fact likely to result in reversal, a new trial or a sentence not including a term of prison." On January 6, 2009, after serving eleven months in federal custody, the last six months at Federal Correctional Institution, Terminal Island, Wilkes was released, pending appeal.show more
