Steven Briggin, vice president
$150,000 in kickbacks
Mr. Briggin, the papers say, paid kickbacks to Impact's purchasing agent in the amount of at least $150,000. He pleaded guilty to one count of rigging bids and one count of engaging in a conspiracy to commit mail fraud.
Last month Darbert Offset Corp. owner Bertram Cohen pled guilty to participating in the kickback scheme and to a related tax charge.
Mr. Briggin is the eighth executive to plead guilty in the case.
The charges against Briggin arise out of an ongoing probe by federal authorities into bid rigging, commercial bribery and tax-related offenses in the marketing communications industry.
