Fomer CIA Agent Sentenced For Fraud
Kyle Dustin Foggo, 54, of Vienna, Virginia and the former executive director of the Central Intelligence Agency, was sentenced to 37 months in prison for defrauding the government. Foggo, who is commonly known as Dusty Foggo, pleaded guilty to one fraud count and prosecutors dropped 27 others in a plea agreement last year. Foggo reportedly received "tens of thousands of dollars" worth in gifts and luxury vacations from his friend and contractor, Brent Wilkes, in exchange for steering multimillion-dollar contracts to Wilkes. The scheme allegedly went on for years. Foggo also allegedly attempted to get his mistress hired by the CIA at a six-figure salary for a job for which she was unqualified. Wilkes was sentenced to 12 years in prison last year for paying bribes to government officials in return for contracts. Wilkes also paid bribes to former congressman Randy "Duke" Cunningham (R-CA), who was sentenced to 8 years in prison for accepting the bribes.
