PHOENIX -- An Arizona vendor for nuclear power plants has pleaded guilty to making false statements about equipment repair to federal regulators.

Prosecutors say 47-year-old Kevin A. Doyle, of Scottsdale, is scheduled to be sentenced Feb. 11 in U.S. District Court in Phoenix.

They say a conviction for false statements carries a maximum sentence of five years in federal prison.

Authorities say Doyle's company was unable to repair a nuclear measurements display for the Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station in Pennsylvania. A substitute display from the Brunswick Nuclear Plant in North Carolina was shipped from Doyle's facility in Scottsdale.

Prosecutors say the serial number on the substitute display was filed down to conceal its identity in violation of Nuclear Regulatory Commission safety regulations and Doyle lied about the situation to NRC investigators.
