They Don't Call Them Procurement Officers for Nothing


Robert Neal and Francis Jones, former senior procurement officers in the Pentagon, were sentenced to more than 24 years each in federal prison for conspiracy, extortion, money laundering, witness tampering and obstruction of justice. The two were found to have demanded cash, gifts and sexual favors from prostitutes sent by companies trying to do business with the military. Neal and Jones were also jointly ordered to pay $1.75 million in restitution.
