Stanley Starts Jail Today

The man who once led one of the world’s most powerful engineering and construction companies until he was brought down by his own web of corruption will report to prison today to start serving his thirty-month sentence.

Albert ‘Jack’ Stanley, 69, was assigned to a federal prison known as FCI Forrest City, a low and medium security jail in eastern Arkansas, 85 miles east of Little Rock and 45 miles west of Memphis, Tennessee.

Inmates at Forrest City low are allowed ‘five (5) visiting points per month, with one point assessed for each visit.’ Four adults can visit at a time, and five children (with prior approval).

Stanley was the chairman and CEO of Houston-based Kellogg Brown & Root, now known as KBR. He pleaded guilty in 2008 to a two-count criminal information charging him with conspiracy to violate the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and to commit mail and wire fraud.

He cooperated with prosecutors and over the next three years KBR and its three partners in the so-called TSKJ joint venture and their agents paid $1.65 billion to settle FCPA charges.

Led by Stanley, TSKJ spent $182 million between 1995 and 2004 to bribe Nigerian government officials. It won contracts to build liquefied natural gas facilities on Bonny Island, Nigeria worth more than $6 billion.
