ST. LOUIS (AP) - A former Boeing procurement officer has been sentenced to 20 months in federal prison for his role in a bribery scheme involving military aircraft parts.

Forty-eight-year-old Deon Anderson of the St. Louis area was sentenced Monday after previously pleading guilty to conspiring with prospective Boeing subcontractors in California, Nevada and Washington state by using coded language to leak proprietary information about bids and pricing. In return, Anderson received cash bribes.

Two of the subcontractors received prison sentences of 15 and 18 months. Another has pleaded guilty and awaits sentencing.

Anderson worked for Boeing’s Defense Space and Security Division. He was convicted of three felony counts of mail fraud, one felony count of wire fraud and one felony count of currency structuring.
