Va. Woman Lands in Jail for Falsifying Sperm Donations

December 14, 2010

A researcher at a Virginia contraceptive development program has been sentenced to a year in federal prison for falsifying sperm donation documents.

U.S. District Judge Robert G. Doumar in Norfolk on Monday also ordered 48-year-old Adrienne R. Boothe to pay more than $150,000 in restitution to the Eastern Virginia Medical School. The Hampton resident pleaded guilty in August 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 last January. She was fired after an internal investigation in February.
