Former Boeing Director Sentenced for Improper Expense Card Charges

The U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri announced last week that Robert D. Rice, former Boeing Director of Supply Chain Management, was sentenced to one year and one day in prison this morning for using Boeing expense cards to make personal purchases that included a $52,000 BMW automobile. He was also ordered to pay restitution of $299,382.69, which he paid this morning at sentencing.

The embezzlement scheme involved a second employee, Lisa J. Hernandez. Hernandez would use the expense cards to make the purchases (which included an automobile, artwork, jewelry, home improvement items and vacations totaling more than $299,382), and then submit the expenses to Rice for his approval and submission for payment to Boeing. In order to further facilitate this scheme, Rice created a shell company in Nevada called Leantraining. Rice would approve purchases by Boeing to Leantraining for “training materials.”
