U.S. District Judge Malcolm J. Howard sentenced William Canupp, former CFO of Beulaville, N.C.-based Eastpointe Human Services, to 3 1/2 years for wire fraud, tax fraud and conspiracy to commit federal program fraud, according to The Wilson Times.

Mr. Canupp served as Eastpointe’s CFO from March 2010 to April 2013. Eastpointe manages the public sector behavioral health system for several counties in eastern North Carolina.

On May 24, 2016, a federal grand jury returned a 47-count indictment against Mr. Canupp, charging him with conspiracy, bribery, organization fraud, wire fraud and money laundering. The indictment was issued nearly one year after a state audit found Mr. Canupp had facilitated kickbacks from two Eastpointe contractors. The audit revealed Eastpointe paid two contractors more than $1 million for renovations from 2010 to 2013. Each time a check was received from Eastpointe, the contractor wrote a personal check to Mr. Canupp. The contractors paid the former CFO a total of $547,595.

Mr. Canupp pleaded guilty in March to conspiracy to commit federal program fraud, wire fraud and tax fraud, according to The Wilson Times.
