A former U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement intelligence chief has pled Guilty to his part in a kickback scheme that defrauded the taxpayers of half a million dollars !!

He says he got over $180,000 and will return the money and spend a couple of years in jail.

The scam involved travel and time expenses, and 4 other ICE cohorts were involved.

U.S Attorney’s office said other similar investigations are ongoing.



An ex–U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement intelligence chief pleaded guilty on Tuesday for his part in a kickback scheme that defrauded the government more than half a million dollars.

James Woosley pleaded guilty to one count of embezzlement for the scam, which involved at least five other ICE employees. The U.S. Attorney’s office charging document states that Woosley and the others submitted “fraudulent travel claims and time and attendance claims for expenses that were not legitimately incurred.”

Woosley’s sentencing is scheduled for July 13, and under federal guidelines he faces a possible sentence of 18-27 months in prison, the U.S. Attorney’s office announced As part of his plea agreement, Woosley agreed to forfeit the $183,125 he obtained in the scheme.



I guess all that Cold Cash was just to tempting to resist !!

Maybe this is just the Tip of the ICEberg
