BIRMINGHAM, AL (WAFF) -  A contractor that defrauded the government will be sentenced on Tuesday.

Joseph Terry will be sentenced in Birmingham in front of Judge Proctor at 10 a.m. Tuesday morning.

He previously plead guilty and then tried to revoke his plea in May, but he was denied. 

Terry defrauded the government out of nearly $14 million. He had several contracts in the Huntsville area.

Terry faced a total of 14 charges of wire fraud, money laundering and making false statements to the Small Business Administration and on loan applications.

Terry, of Meridianville, was the sole owner of Government Technical Services before shutting down in 2008.

A US attorney said from 2002 to 2008, Terry submitted false tax returns to the Small Business Administration that he was current but never filed with the IRS.
