Repost: Former OMB Chairman Ronnie Ricketts Found Guilty of Graft

The Sandiganbayan on Friday found former Optical Media Board (OMB) chairman Ronnie Ricketts guilty of graft for his mishandling of seized pirated DVDs and VCDs in 2010.

The anti-graft court’s Fourth Division meted the penalty of six to eight years imprisonment, plus the subsidiary punishment of perpetual disqualification from holding public office, against Ricketts, a former actor.

Ricketts, the court said, gave undue benefit to Sky High Marketing Corporation when the OMB confiscated tons of pirated compact discs in its Quezon City building on May 27, 2010.

That same day, the confiscated items were "released and reloaded into the corporation's vehicle" instead of filing the appropriate charges against the company. —KBK, GMA News
