SALT LAKE CITY — A military contractor and an Army reservist have pleaded not guilty to charges in what prosecutors call a multimillion-dollar scheme to win military contracts in Afghanistan.

Prosecutors say defense contractor Michael L. Taylor is being held on a related federal complaint of trying to bribe an FBI agent to drop the investigation.

The Army reservist, David Young, of Hernando Beach, Fla., was released after his court appearance Tuesday in Salt Lake City.

Young's lawyer denies the former Army officer leaked bid information that allowed Taylor's Boston-based company to win $54 million in contracts to supply Afghan troops with weapons and training.

The case broke in Utah when a third business associate made a series of cash withdrawals from a St. George credit union just under the federal reporting limit of $10,000. Christopher Harris earlier pleaded not guilty to charges in the bid scheme.
