ST. LOUIS (AP) - A Pennsylvania woman faces sentencing Dec. 11 for defrauding the government to get a janitorial contract for a St. Louis federal building.

Regina Danko of Ivyland, Pennsylvania, pleaded guilty Friday in U.S. District Court in St. Louis to one count of violation of Title 18. In addition to a possible fine and prison sentence she must forfeit $2.4 million.

Danko was the principal shareholder of Tri-Ark Industries Inc. Her company won a five-year contract for janitorial services at the Robert A. Young Jr. federal building in St. Louis, collecting more than $8.7 million from 2007 to 2012.

The bid was intended for contracts set aside for firms owned by veterans. Danko admitted that the veteran with whom she partnered had no real role in the company.
