A systems analyst who no longer works for the City of Pittsburgh is scheduled to plead guilty to helping a man fraudulently obtain a $327,000 contract to install radios and computers in Pittsburgh police cars.
Federal court records show Christine Ann Kebr is scheduled to plead guilty Thursday before a federal judge.
She's charged with conspiring with 63-year-old Arthur Bedway Jr., of Robinson Township, and an unnamed woman who pretended to be the owner of his Alpha Outfitters business,, which got the set-aside contract because the city believed the company was female-owned.
Kebr is charged with taking a $3,000 bribe to help prepare the fraudulent bid.
Bedway is still awaiting trial, but his attorney contends that Bedway's contract was a "bargain" for the city and nobody was harmed by the deal.
