The federal government has filed charges against a Haddonfield-based tech contractor who allegedly billed the City of Philadelphia for $1.2 million in services, about 17,000 hours, for work that was not completed, the Daily News reports.
From the report:

The fake billing ran from 2004 through 2008, when [Bill Jones] had contracts to provide information-technology support to the city Revenue Department and Water Department, and the city-affiliated nonprofit Community Behavioral Health.
The feds are seeking $1.2 million in restitution from Jones for the city. The charges were filed directly by the U.S. attorney, which means a plea deal is likely in the works
