Three Southern California men--including two Orange County residents--have pleaded guilty to charges that they set up a tax fraud involving phony invoices. The fraud was carried out at two Montebello companies--Super K and J.K. Precision Machining Inc.--that were subcontractors to Rockwell International on the B-1 in the mid-1980s. The companies' owner--Joseph Kasparoff, 55, of Encino--wrote company checks based on bogus invoices to two Orange County residents.
