Well guess more of Obama people with hand in the cookie jar?
An ex-U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement intelligence chief is expected to plead guilty on Tuesday for his part in a kickback scheme that defrauded the government half a million dollars, according to a report.
James Woosley faces one count of embezzlement for the scam, which involved at least five other ICE employees. The U.S. Attorney’s office charging document states that Woosley and the others submitted “fraudulent travel claims and time and attendance claims for expenses that were not legitimately incurred.”
Four have already pleaded guilty in the scheme. Lateisha Rollerson, Woosley’s former assistant who often lived with him, pleaded guilty on March 29 and is scheduled for sentencing on June 7. As part of her plea agreement, Rollerson will forfeit the $295,866 she gained from the scheme. The other three former ICE employees who have been convicted are Ahmed Adil Abdallat, William Korn and Stephen E. Henderson.
Woosley worked first as Deputy Director for the ICE Office of Intelligence before moving on to serve as Acting Director in 2009, and a year later becoming Acting Assistant Director of Intelligence in the then-newly formed Homeland Security Investigations headquarters.
Between May 2008 and February 2011, Woosley and others “did willfully and knowingly embezzle, steal, purloin and convert” government funds for themselves, the charging document states. Prosecutors are seeking $183,125 from Woosley for what he obtained in the scheme.
Woosley is expected to plead guilty in federal court on Tuesday, according to Fox News.
