Accomplice In QAC Thefts Sentenced

Bradley Kornegay, a 24-year-old Church Hill resident, was sentenced to a year in jail after pleading guilty to stealing more than $167,000 in county funds. Kornegay also must serve probation and pay more than $22,000 in restitution. Kornegay did not admit guilt, but conceded that prosecutors had sufficient evidence to convict him. Charging documents say former county Fire and EMS Commission chairman Ted Jackson submitted requisitions for fire equipment and listed Kornegay as the vendor. Jackson was accused of depositing the checks in Kornegay’s account without ever purchasing the equipment. Jackson pleaded guilty in April to two counts of felony theft and was sentenced to 18 months in jail.
