Guilty Plea in Cunningham Bribery Case

Kyle “Dusty” Foggo, the former executive director of the Central Intelligence Agency and co-defendant in the Duke Cunningham bribery scandal, pleaded guilty to a single count of defrauding taxpayers of honest services, a charge that carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine, according to a Sept. 29 press statement from the U.S. Attorney’s office.

A San Diego native and childhood friend of convicted defense contractor Brent Wilkes, Foggo admitted that he allowed Wilkes, the founder of Poway-based ACDS Inc., to conceal their close relationship by adopting false stories regarding their relationship, and using “straw men” and shell companies to conceal Wilkes’ interest in CIA contracts.

Wilkes provided Foggo with gifts and vacations in return for Foggo’s help in setting up lucrative contracts benefiting ACDS, federal prosecutors said.

Foggo and Wilkes were originally indicted together in February 2007 in connection with the Cunningham bribery case. A federal jury found Wilkes guilty of 13 felony charges including conspiracy, bribery and money laundering in November, and he was sentenced to 12 years in a federal prison in February.

Sentencing for Foggo was set for Jan. 8 in Virginia.
