Clinton was sentenced to 71 months in prison and ordered to pay $2,271,720.05 in restitution.
According to evidence presented at trial, Clinton was employed as the Chief Information Officer at a business in South Bend. From about March 2012 through October 2017, he executed a scheme to defraud his employer. He incorporated a separate business called Innovation Services that supposedly provided information-technology services to his employer, and he used a virtual office to submit fraudulent billings to his employer totaling over $2.2 million. Clinton’s employer sent checks to the virtual office as payment for fake services claimed in the fraudulent billings. At the time, his employer did not know Clinton owned the sham business.
