Former FBI Agent Indicted on Charges of Trying to Derail a Federal Investigation into Defense Contracts

 A former FBI agent, along with a defense contractor, was indicted Thursday for participating in what authorities say was a multimillion-dollar scheme to win military contracts in Afghanistan, the Associated Press reports.

An FBI special agent assigned to counterintelligence work until September 2011, Robert G. Lustyik, 50, is accused of using his position to derail a criminal investigation into contract awards, according to the AP.

The Sleepy Hollow, NY, resident agreed to abuse his position in exchange for cash, medical expenses and business proceeds, authorities allege.

Also indicted was defense contractor, 51-year-old Michael Taylor, who is accused of making the offers to Lustyik.

Investigators charge that Lustyik tried to impede federal charges against Taylor, telling feds in Utah that Taylor was a confidential informant, according to the AP.
