On July 28, 2015, after an extensive, multi-year investigation involving the Defense Criminal Investigative Service (DCIS) and the U.S. Department of Transportation, Office of Inspector General, Jeff Krantz pleaded guilty to supplying falsely remarked Intel microprocessor chips, many of which were used in U.S. military and commercial helicopters.

Krantz, who pleaded guilty to one count of wire fraud, was sentenced on December 10, 2015 to three years' probation and fined $100,000.00. He was also ordered to pay $402,650.00 in restitution.

As part of his guilty plea Krantz agreed to a two-year ban on the purchase or sale of electronic parts. He also forfeits all direct or indirect control over his company, Harry Krantz LLC, authorities said.
