GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) -- A Diamondhead business that no longer exists has admitted making false statements on concrete-stress tests on jobs at Stennis Space Center in south Mississippi.
A spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney's Office tells The Sun Herald (http://bit.ly/15HAx0t ) that corporate representative Robert C. Miller pleaded guilty on the company's behalf Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Gulfport.
The 73-year-old Miller was doing business as Gulf Cities Testing Laboratories LLC, a subcontractor on projects at Stennis in 2011.
Miller's attorney, Arthur Carlisle, said he reserves comment until after his client is sentenced on Sept. 4.
The company faces a fine of up to $250,000.
The company was indicted in April on charges involving work for NASA on three diffuser pads on a flight-engine test stand and for the Army Corps of Engineers at the Mississippi Army Ammunition Plant.
Prosecutors say the company didn't do the tests or used faulty methods and equipment.
