The founder of a company that supplied body armor to the U.S. military was sentenced to 17 years in prison for his role in a $200 million fraud scheme, the Justice Department said.David H. Brooks was formerly chief executive of DHB Industries Inc., a Long Island-based company that also supplied armor to law enforcement agencies. He was convicted in Sept. 2010 on charges that he overstated the company's financial performance and misappropriated corporate funds for his own use.
