Ex-intelligence official sentenced to 20 months

Former acting intelligence director at ICE sentenced to 20 months for defrauding government By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) The former acting intelligence director for Immigration and Customs Enforcement at the Homeland Security Department has been sentenced to 20 months in prison for defrauding the government of more than $180,000.

James Woosley received the sentence Friday after pleading guilty to conversion of government money in May. Four other people have also pleaded guilty in the case, which involved fraudulent travel vouchers and attendance claims and cost ICE more than $500,000.

Prosecutors say that Woosley submitted phony paperwork for his travel and work, and took kickbacks from other employees.
