Va. Woman Steals $150K Via False Sperm Donations

August 31, 2010

A researcher at Eastern Virginia Medical School's contraceptive development program has pleaded guilty to stealing more than $150,000 by falsifying sperm donations.

Federal prosecutors say 48-year-old Adrienne R. Boothe of Hampton pleaded guilty Monday in Norfolk federal court to theft from a program receiving federal funds.

Boothe worked at the school for more than 20 years. The school's Contraceptive Research and Development Program pays $30 for sperm donations to be used in its research.

Prosecutors say Boothe falsified donor reimbursement documents from January 2003 through January. She was fired after an internal investigation in February.

Boothe faces up to 10 years in prison when she is sentenced Dec. 13.
