GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - Federal prosecutors say a former Mississippi shipyard official has pleaded guilty to lying to government agents who were investigating “government mischarging.”

U.S. Attorney Gregory Davis says 63-year-old Randy Mitchell Wilson, of Grand Bay, Alabama, pleaded guilty to one count of making a false statement to Navy and Coast Guard investigators.

Wilson used to be director of manufacturing services at Huntington Ingalls Industries in Pascagoula.

In a news release Thursday, Davis said Wilson was questioned as part of an investigation that is still going on.

Davis says Wilson faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Sentencing is scheduled Aug. 23, before Chief U.S. District Judge Louis Guirola.
