The Fleishman-Hillard executives are accused of falsifying bills to the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power. Prosecutors allege Douglas Dowie and John Stodder Junior overbilled the department by more than $300,000 over a four-year period. Dowie heads the Los Angeles office of Fleishman-Hillard, and Stodder is his deputy. The public relations firm had a $3 million-a-year contract with the Department of Water and Power. Prosecutors allege that Dowie and Stodder also conspired to overcharge the Port of Los Angeles, the city's airport agency and several private businesses. The firm has refunded more than $6 million to the city. Jurors went home for the weekend without reaching a verdict. They were expected to resume deliberations Tuesday.
