NEW HAVEN — A Yale University employee has been indicted on charges that he operated a kickback scheme while working at the school. According to the indictment, 57-year-old George Dobuzinsky arranged to receive kickbacks totaling tens of thousands of dollars when he was a project manager responsible for soliciting vendors for audio and visual projects at the university between 2005 and 2013.
Dobuzinsky, who lives in Durham, was indicted June 11. He pleaded not guilty in Bridgeport federal court to conspiracy to commit wire frauds as well as three counts of honest-services wire fraud. Each count carries a maximum prison sentence of 20 years. He posted the $300,000 bond and was released pending trial.
