Man Accused of Hiring Prostitutes For Top Employees

Crime 3

Among other charges, David H. Brooks is accused of offering employment with a few too many benefits, namely prostitutes. In addition to the girls-for-hire, Brooks is also accused of using company money to buy textbooks for his daughter, porn for his son, plastic surgery for his wife, a burial plot for his mother, and $100,000 American-flag belt buckle encrusted with rubies, sapphires and diamonds for himself. From the article: "The expense-account abuse, the prosecution has said, represented a pittance compared with the $190 million that Mr. Brooks and another top employee are accused of making through a stock fraud scheme in which he falsified information about his company’s performance — including significantly overstating the inventory of bulletproof vests — to inflate the price of the stock before selling his shares in 2004."
