So I'm Fired?
A lot of people might fudge an occasional small personal expense with the company credit card. Then there's John David Berrett of Gilbert, Arizona. The feds accuse him of dropping $476,000 of employer World Wide Technology's cash on what was described as an "online-stripper habit." A 16-page indictment details the IT architect's alleged activity over the course of 13 months beginning in September 2013. Among the more colorful allegations: that he tipped online strippers roughly 2,200 times (the total hit the six-figures); gave another stripper $26,800 so she could buy tires, apparently very nice ones, among other things; and gave others things like a "digital piano." The 40-year-old is also accused of submitting fudged expense reports in what authorities say was a way to cover up some of the expenditures. The company, which does $6.7 billion in revenue is based in St. Louis, hence Berrett's indictment by a federal grand jury in Missouri on five counts of wire fraud
