has agreed to plead guilty to a two-count information charging him with conspiracy to defraud the United States and filing a false income tax return, according to court documents.He
could face up to eight years in prison.
"We feel betrayed and victimized by the actions of Timothy Hubler
and Dennis Campbell, given the trust that had been placed in them within our organization," Schuylkill Products
said in a statement released through its public relations firm Monday.
