United States of America v. Darleen A. Druyun

The Air Force’s former chief acquisition official, Darleen Druyun, was sentenced to nine months in federal prison for her part in a conspiracy to assist Boeing in a tanker lease contract while negotiating a job with them, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 208, which deals with personal financial conflicts of interest. She was also fined $5,000 and ordered to perform 150 hours of community service. She pleaded guilty to her changes and took full responsibility for her actions. In June 2006, Boeing entered into a global settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice for $615 million to resolve this and other pending investigations.
