Former soldier charged with taking bribes, steering contracts in Kuwait

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Friday, April 25, 2014 3:49 PM EDT

A former U.S. Army soldier has been charged with taking $33,000 from the representative of a Kuwaiti company in exchange for steering contracts to supply food and water to a military outpost to the business.

Prosecutors in Louisville on Friday charged Herman Smith, a former sergeant first class and food adviser at Camp Arifjan in Kuwait, with graft and conflict of interest. Prosecutors allege that a representative of Al Ghannam & Nair General Trading Co. also gave Smith a laptop computer and a portable PlayStation between 2004 and 2009.

In exchange, prosecutors say, Smith helped the company land contracts to provide services to the Army's dining facility at the camp.

Court records did not list an attorney or a court date for Smith.
