Thomas Brock, 51, of Camden, pleaded guilty Aug. 28 to one of 18 counts filed against him by the U.S. government related to allegations he and several co-conspirators committed fraud to obtain nearly $350 million worth of federal construction contracts. Brock; his wife, Tory; Jerry Eddins of Aspermont, Texas; Harry Michael White, of Columbia; Cory J. Adams, of Columbia; Alfonza McCuthen Jr. of Irmo; and Thomas Brock’s former lover, Allison Amanda Sauls, of New York, N.Y.; were all indicted for their roles in the scheme in August 2016. According to a superseding indictment filed in March 2017, the Brocks and their co-defendants took advantage of construction contracts administered through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and the U.S. Small Business Administration.
