Public servants sentenced for fraud — 12.03.2009

Two former Department of Public Works officers have been sentenced today in the Brisbane District Court for approving false invoices for painting work worth more than $200 000.

Robin Brown pleaded guilty last month to a charge of fraud while Bradley Goodwin pleaded guilty to charges of official corruption and fraud. The charges arose from a CMC investigation into false invoices paid for painting work not performed.

A third man Christopher Creedy, a principal of Brisbane and West Painting Pty Ltd, also pleaded guilty to charges of official corruption and fraud.

Today Judge Terry Martin sentenced Creedy and Goodwin to four years jail to be suspended after one year.

Brown was given a three-year wholly suspended sentence after the court was told he played a lesser role in the scheme.

Creedy has been ordered to pay restitution of $210 061.
