Woman sentenced in connection with Lejeune masonry projects

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Federal prosecutors say a Florida woman who set up a phony small business to qualify for $30 million in federal masonry projects, including two at Camp Lejeune (luh-JERN’), has been sentenced to 30 months behind bars.

U.S. Attorney Thomas Walker said 53-year-old Julian Marie Breslow of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, was sentenced Tuesday in Raleigh.

Breslow had pleaded guilty last year to making false statements to the U.S. government. Originally, she also faced fraud and identity theft charges.

Prosecutors say Breslow owned Pompano Masonry Corp., one of the country’s largest masonry companies. They say she also set up Breslow Construction as a woman-owned small business in her name and those of her two daughters.

But prosecutors say Breslow didn’t quality as a small business because it was never independent of Pompano.
