SLEEPY HOLLOW, N.Y. – A retired Sleepy Hollow FBI agent was taken into federal custody in Utah after prosecutors said he violated terms of his release by indirectly contacting a possible witness, the Salt Lake Tribune reports .
Robert Lustyik, 50, faces accusations that he conspired to stop an investigation into a $54 million military contract scheme involving Michael L. Taylor.
Lustyik was indicted on 11 counts of conspiracy, wire fraud and obstruction of justice in October. He pleaded not guilty.
The Salt Lake Tribune reports prosecutors presented evidence that Lustyik “violated the terms of his release by asking a third party to deliver a bag of cash — a loan repayment, according to Lustyik’s attorney — to the potential witness.”
