A North Sioux City, South Dakota, computer technician has pleaded guilty to scheme that prosecutors say cost Apple more than $330,000.
In federal court, Tuesday, Darin Moran, agreed to plead guilty to one count of mail fraud. Back in 2010, Moran worked as a certified Apple repair technician for Amerikit, an Apple service provider in North Sioux City. Court documents say he also had a side business, D&M Sales, which sold and repaired computers and computer parts.
Prosecutors say Moran would get computers, and replacement parts, from Apple for free. He allegedly used those free parts in his side business, resulting in much higher profits. Prosecutors say that cost Apple $334,934.
Moran is set to be sentenced in federal court on August 12th.
