ENTERPRISE, Ala. (AP) - An Alabama man once employed by an Army contractor has been sentenced to two years in federal prison after pleading guilty to taking kickbacks and evading taxes.

Federal prosecutors said 47-year-old Victor Villalobos of Enterprise, Alabama, was sentenced Wednesday by a judge in the Southern District of Florida.

Authorities say Villalobos took more than $1.9 million in kickbacks between 2009 and 2014 from a subcontractor that did business with his employer, an unnamed company that provided services for the Army at Fort Rucker in Alabama. Prosecutors say Villalobos illegally evaded taxes by not reporting the kickbacks on his tax returns.

Prosecutors say Villalobos demanded the subcontractor pay him to ensure it continued to do business with his employer.
