NY CEO Indicted in Mail & Wire Fraud Case

On Monday, December 16, 2019, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Eastern District of New York issued a press release announcing that John Comito, Chief Executive Officer of AutoExec Computer Systems, Inc. in Brooklyn, NY, was arrested and later released on a $500,000 bond in connection with mail and wire fraud charges associated with the E-rate program. 
According to US Attorney Richard P. Donoghue, “Comito allegedly overbilled the E-rate program and schools for equipment and services.”  Per the press release: 
“From 2013 to 2017, 26 elementary, middle and high schools located in the Diocese of Brooklyn contracted with AutoExec to provide telecommunications equipment and services.  At least eight schools received no equipment or services, and the remaining schools received partial, substandard or non-approved equipment and services.  In total, Comito overbilled the E-rate program, and defrauded the program and schools, in the amount of approximately $426,000. 
The charges in the superseding indictment are allegations, and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.”
