Former Qwest Communications executive Grant Graham has surrendered to federal authorities in Denver. Graham faces an indictment that charges him with artificially inflating revenues. He turned himself in to the U-S Marshal's Service this morning. He's the last of four former Qwest executives named in the 12-count indictment to surrender.
Thomas Hall, John Walker and Bryan Treadway were led into a federal courtroom in handcuffs yesterday. Arraignment is scheduled for next Wednesday. The former executives are charged with seeking to create more than 33 million dollars in revenues by wrongly reporting a purchase order with the Arizona School Facilities Board. Graham was attending a funeral yesterday when the others surrendered.
