[JURIST] US District Court Judge Gerald Bruce Lee sentenced former Boeing CFO Michael Sears to four months in prison Friday for aiding and abetting illegal employment negotiations [US Code]. Sears pleaded guilty in November to charges that he offered then-Air Force chief acquisition official Darleen Druyun a $250,000 executive position with Boeing at the same time she was negotiating an Air Force tanker lease contract with the company. Druyun pleaded guilty [plea agreement, PDF] to her role in the conspiracy and was sentenced to nine months in federal prison. The plea agreement confirms that Druyun met with Sears in October 2002 to discuss a job opportunity, and did not disqualify herself from working on Boeing business until November 5, 2003.
