GULFPORT — A business that made false statements to Stennis Space Center about concrete-stress tests has failed to make payments on a judgment of $66,671, federal court documents show.
The Sun Herald reports that federal prosecutors want an accounting from company president Robert C. Miller. A judge has not ruled on the request.
The money includes restitution and fines against Gulf Cities Testing Laboratories LLC.
Miller pleaded guilty in 2013. He was ordered to pay $1,200 per month in restitution and $700 per month in fines.
Prosecutors say the business didn’t perform required tests or used faulty methods and equipment.
The business did work for NASA in 2011 on three diffuser pads on a flight-engine test stand and for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at the Mississippi Army Ammunition Plant.
