Two former executives have admitted to using an Easton-based company to swindle dozens of schools in 12 states.
Mitchell Kurlander and Alan Abeshaus pleaded guilty to conspiracy in a New Jersey court Tuesday.
The men served as chief financial officer and chief executive officer of the Circle System Group, which is an Easton-based company that refurbishes football helmets.
The men, police said, duped schools by double-billing, inflating invoices and drawing up fake bids from other companies.
They each face up to 20 years in prison.
