Court sentences ex-Apple manager to 1-year prison term over kickback scheme

Gregg Keizer | Dec. 9, 2014
A former Apple manager who pleaded guilty to accepting kickbacks from Asian iPhone and iPod accessory suppliers was ordered to start serving his 366-day sentence in federal prison in February, more than four years after his arrest.

After Devine is released from prison in February 2016, he will serve three additional years of supervised release, Haag's office said last week.

Apple-related sales booked by Jin Li Mould's parent company, Jubilee Industries Holdings, also of Singapore, fell by nearly $13 million in 2012, the last year for which Jubilee posted financial records on its website, apparently in reaction to the kickback scheme.

Jubilee's CEO, Ng Boon Leng, who had also been implicated in the Devine dealings, resigned at the end of 2012 to "pursue his own interests," according to that year's annual report by the firm.
