A former worker at the Savannah River Site is facing federal felony charges after allegedly giving false information on his application for Site access and two subsequent renewals of credentials.


John Parkhurst Madden was indicted Wednesday on three charges of making materially false, fictitious or fraudulent statements to the government, a crime that carries up to five years in prison.


According to the indictment, Madden submitted an “Application for Site Access Authorization” form on Dec. 5, 2011, wherein he listed a false Social Security number.


The false number was listed on the form managed by the Savannah River Site Operations Office.


On May 23, it is alleged that Madden again submitted false information, this time an incorrect date of birth on an application to renew his security badge. He is accused of doing the same on July 19 on another “Badge Renewal” form.


In both instances, it is alleged that these were not mistakes, but rather “Madden then well knew, the birth date he submitted was false.”


Details of Madden’s specific employer, job function, security clearance or tenure at the Site were unavailable at time of publication.
