Former FAA Senior Advisor Pleads Guilty To Theft for Filing False Travel Vouchers
On October 18, 2007, Howard L. Swancy, a former Senior Advisor (GS–15 equivalent) to the FAA Deputy Administrator, pled guilty to First Degree Fraud in D.C. Superior Court. Mr. Swancy entered into a deferred sentencing agreement which allows his sentencing to be continued for six months during which time he must complete 40 hours of community service and the fraud charge will be dismissed. Mr. Swancy filed five fraudulent travel vouchers, including altered and fabricated hotel receipts, resulting in him wrongfully receiving more than $5,200 between March 2005 and January 2007. Mr. Swancy resigned from FAA in March 2007 during the course of our investigation.
