Former FAA employee Nicole Jenkins of Renton, WA, pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Seattle to using her Government travel card for more than $4,000 in unauthorized cash withdrawals and her Government travel card for almost $3,000 in unauthorized charges. She also pleaded guilty to making a false statement during an OIG investigation. Jenkins was ordered by a U.S. District Court judge in Seattle on October 10 to pay $6272 in restitution for the unauthorized withdrawals and charges. As a result of the OIG investigation, FAA terminated Jenkins from her position as a program assistant in October 2001.
