Prosecutors Want Proceeds from Devine Fraud Case

| News

Prosecutors are hoping to convince the court that Paul Devine, the Apple manager charged with selling company secrets, must surrender the money and property he obtained as part of his under the table deals. Documents filed with the court detail about US$950,000 scattered across six different accounts, along with a Porsche Cayenne tagged for potential seizure, according to Bloomberg.

Mr. Devine will be required to give the court access to his various safe deposit boxes, and the prosecution is currently reviewing the content on computers they seized from him, too.

Mr. Devine was charged with several counts of fraud for selling information to parts suppliers so they could negotiate better deals with Apple. He was accused of selling the information to companies in China, South Korea, Taiwan and Singapore.

The court released Mr. Devine on bail that included a US$440,000 lein against his mother’s house along with the equity in his own house. He also signed over $612,407 from foreign bank accounts, and $50,000 of his brother’s money. $313,000 from a Korean bank account is also earmarked for the court, although it’s unclear how long it will take to get the funds out of the country and into the U.S.

Mr. Devine has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

So if they get the porche, who gets to drive it?  Maybe Apple could use it as an “Employee of the Month” enticement.

I’m not sure why anyone would want the Cayenne, unless it was to give it to someone you disliked.

The prosecutor’s spouse? Since this is a criminal case, I believe the forfeited money would go to the government prosecuting the case, which they’d probably justify as covering or offsetting the costs of prosecution and incarceration.
