NEWS / Former NCDMV Official Sentenced for Fraud Scheme

NEW BERN—United States Attorney Thomas G. Walker announced that in federal court on February 13, 2012, WILLIAM C. TOMAN, JR., 53, of Fayetteville, North Carolina, was sentenced to 18 months’ imprisonment followed by three years’ supervised release. The court also imposed restitution of $15,000 to be paid to the victims in the case. The court enhanced TOMAN’s sentence due to his attempt to obstruct the investigation.

A criminal information was filed on September 14, 2011, charging three counts of mail fraud, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 1341. On November 14, 2011, TOMAN pled guilty to the charges.

According to the information, in January, 2006, TOMAN was appointed to the position of District Supervisor of the Division of License & Theft Bureau for the North Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles (NCDMV), and stationed in the Fayetteville office. His official duties included choosing how to best utilize NCDMV funds allocated for undercover operations, including control purchases of stolen equipment and motor vehicles, and communicating with insurance company representatives regarding reimbursement. In 2009, TOMAN used his official position to obtain three $5,000 contributions from insurance companies to be used in funding further NCDMV undercover operations, but instead converted the funds to his personal use.

Mr. Walker commented: “At every level of government, officials are invested with authority, with responsibility and with the trust of the citizens of this state. Here, for his own personal gain, the defendant forgot his duty to the citizens. The sentence imposed will serve as a stark reminder to all of us who serve in government that we have a trust to keep with the public.”

Investigation of this case was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation. Assistant United States Attorney Dennis Duffy is serving as prosecution for the government.
