This was important enough, I thought it was worth posting. I comes from the Report on Research Compliance which is cosponsored by NCURA and AIS. Former Penn State Prof Faces Indictment for $3 Million Grant Fraud Craig Grimes, formerly a professor of material science and engineering at Penn State University, was charged Jan. 31 with "wire fraud, [making] false statements, and money laundering," according to the U.S. attorney for the Department of Justice's Middle District of Pennsylvania. Grimes is alleged to have accepted a $1.196 million NIH grant and failing to "direct" some $509,000 of the total to Hershey Medical Center as intended. Instead, he kept the money "for his own use." Grimes is also accused of receiving a $1.2 million Department of Energy grant meant for organizations without other resources, without revealing in his application that he had already received funding from the National Science Foundation. Grimes faces a maximum of 35 years in prison and a fine of $750,000. Link: http://www.justice.gov/usao/pam/news/2012/Grimes_01_31_2012.htm
