Plea in DOD Employee Corruption Case

A press release of the DOJ reports that "a former Department of Defense (DOD) employee, pleaded guilty to accepting illegal gratuities while serving as an operational support planner in the Future Operations Division of the U.S. Army Headquarters, Special Operations Command–Europe (HQSOCEUR)."  This case comes out of the recent National Procurement Fraud Initiative.  The case appears to involve $24,000 and a job offer by an individual who "served in the U.S. Air Force until January 2005, when he left active duty and began work as a DOD civilian employee."  One question is whether this plea and others will be used to secure indictments of individuals who are in higher roles.  Another question is whether there were adequate compliance programs in effect to avoid the cases being examined by the National Procurement Fraud Initiative.
