Today, the defendants signed plea agreements with the U.S. Attorney of the Eastern Wisconsin Division
RACINE, Wis.— SC Johnson is pleased that Milton E. Morris. Katherine M. Scheller, Peter K. O’Malley, Thomas R. Russell, Michael A. Rivett, and Patrick M. Kane have signed plea agreements with the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern Division of Wisconsin. In signing these plea agreements, these individuals acknowledged their involvement in a scheme to defraud SC Johnson through giving it fraudulent and inflated invoices for transportation services and accept responsibly for their crimes. We want to express our appreciation to the United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, the United States Postal Office and the IRS for their diligence and professionalism leading to these plea agreements. We are grateful that justice has been served and await sentencing. Additionally, we look forward to when all parties involved in this fraudulent scheme have been brought to justice and held accountable for their acts. Greed and deceit have no place in our society.
