A former Coppin State University employee has been charged with three counts of procurement fraud.
The charges allege that Jerry Lamont Stamper, 59, of Randallstown falsified and suppressed material facts in connection with procurements made through the University, resulting in his personal gain. The alleged incidents occurred on September 2, 2008, May 5, 2009 and March 30, 2010.
Procurement fraud is a felony punishable by five years' incarceration and/or a fine of up to $20,000. A criminal charge is merely an accusation of wrongdoing and the defendant is presumed innocent unless the State proves his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
