Man Sentenced To 21 Months For Defrauding Microsoft

Wilson Delancy was also ordered to repay more than $4 million for his role in a scheme to steal software from the company.

SEATTLE (AP) -- A federal judge on Wednesday sentenced a former Microsoft Corp. employee to nearly two years in prison and ordered him to pay more than $4 million in restitution for his role in a scheme to steal software from the company.

Prosecutors said that between October 1998 and August 2000, Wilson I. Delancy, 36, of Maple Valley, Wash., conspired with Kori R. Brown, the administrative assistant for Microsoft's X-Box video-game-console program, to steal the software.

Brown placed 17 orders for high-end business software from Microsoft's warehouse in Columbus, Ohio. Brown indicated the software was for business use or for donation to charitable organizations.

In reality, prosecutors said, Brown gave the software to Delancy, who knew it was stolen and sold it to the owner of a software store.

U.S. District Judge Marsha Pechman sentenced Delancy to 21 months in prison for mail fraud and ordered him to pay $4 million in restitution.

Pechman sentenced Brown, 31, of Spokane, last November to 17 months in prison and restitution of $4 million.
