Akron man admits scamming NJ-based air charter firm

NEWARK, N.J. -- Federal prosecutors in New Jersey say an Akron, Ohio man has admitted posing as a high-level executive with a financial firm to improperly obtain charter jet flights and limo rides.

Christopher Henderson pleaded guilty Thursday to a complaint charging him with wire fraud.

The 32-year-old Akron resident faces up to 20 years in prison when he's sentenced April 15.

Prosecutors say Henderson and others conspired last year to fraudulently obtain at least three flights between May and June through Jet Aviation, a major business aviation provider based at Teterboro Airport.

They paid for the flights by tapping into a sham $350,000 line of credit issued by the company. The scheme unraveled in June, when a Jet Aviation employee contacted the unnamed company where the conspirators supposedly worked.
