(Cincinnati) - Doug Evans, Vice President Jim Bailey and Evans Landscaping have been determined guilty of federal wire fraud charges.
A federal jury deliberated for a few hours Tuesday morning before turning over a verdict early afternoon.
Evans and Bailey face up to 100-years in jail and the company could be fined more than $1 million.
They're accused of fraud and conspiracy for allegedly creating a fake company to win government contracts designed for minority business owners. Evans says he was just trying to help a friend start a business.
