GameStop embezzlement case reaches verdict
Screwing over your corporation in a game like EVE Online? Really cool and a sign of ruthless cleverness and ambition.
Doing the same thing to your real-life corporation? Still clever and ambitious, but somewhat less cool.
Former GameStop Texas executive Frank Christopher Olivera was sentenced last week to 51 months of prison time for embezzling $1.7 million from GameStop to the fictitious Cloud Communications LLC. According to a statement from the US Attorney’s Office:
As previously reported, Olivera was let go from GameStop in April 2011 and could have faced up to 20 years of prison time.
Maybe after he’s released he can trade in his worn-out prison oranges for some new duds?
