Worker at Victor Company Admits Faking Test Results on Military Electronics

Rochester, NY -- A worker at a defense contractor in Victor has admitted falsifying test data on electronic equipment being sold to the military. Prosecutors say Steve Wysocki of Newark also directed subordinates to falsify the data. He worked for Flightline Systems and oversaw testing of a military radio and an anti-submarine sonor buoy for the navy.

Authorities say re-testing later cost the Pentagon nearly $300,000.

Wysocki pleaded guilty to four counts and will be sentenced in March.
