Sullivan gets five years for WorldCom fraud

Former WorldCom chief financial officer Scott Sullivan sentenced to five years

Former WorldCom chief financial officer Scott Sullivan has been sentenced to
five years in prison for his part in the fraud that brought down telecoms giant
WorldCom.
Sullivan was star witness in the trial of his former boss Bernie Ebbers and
received a reduced sentence as a result of his co-operation with authorities
investigating what was the largest accounting fraud in US history.

Sullivan, 43, pleaded guilty to charges of conspiracy, securities fraud and
making false financial filings and is the fifth former WorldCom executive to be
jailed.
