ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Another person has pleaded guilty in a massive government fraud case in Albany.

Kelli Durham, 33, pleaded guilty to charges of conspiracy to commit wire fraud.

Durham admitted she was the manager of an Albany trucking company that over-billed the Department of Defense for transporting equipment from MCLB Albany.

She says she was paid more than $900,000 for her part in the scheme.

Prosecutors say the government was over-charged between $7 million and $20 million between July 2008 and June 2012.

At least $37 million went to the trucking company Durham worked for. That company has not been named in court documents.

Prosecutors recommended Durham serve between 46 and 57 months in prison, and repay $905,000. She is now cooperating with the government's investigation.

Durham is the 7th person to plead guilty in the case.
