FBI Special Agent Sentenced for Embezzlement of Government Money


On August 17, 2022, an FBI Special Agent assigned to the New York Division in New York, New York, was sentenced to 3 months of confinement and ordered to pay $13,500 in restitution for one count of embezzlement of government money.  The Court further ordered the Probation Office to conduct an inspection of the defendant’s home to ascertain if it is suitable for home confinement, and on September 19, 2022, the sentencing order was amended to reflect a sentence of one year of probation with the first 90 days on home confinement.  Scott F. Carpenter was sentenced in the District of Nevada.  According to the factual statement in support of the guilty plea, from on or about July 27, 2017, through on or about July 31, 2017, Carpenter and three FBI agents traveled to Las Vegas to conduct undercover operations in furtherance of an investigation.  On July 29, 2017, Carpenter obtained $10,000 in undercover funds from the safe in their suite and purchased $10,000 in gaming chips at the Bellagio Hotel and Casino. For the next two to three hours, Carpenter gambled away the $10,000.  He then pressed the undercover agent for and was provided additional money belonging to the United States and gambled that money away as well.  In total, Carpenter lost $13,500 belonging to the United States from gambling.  The investigation is being conducted by the OIG’s Miami Field Office with the assistance of the OIG’s Cyber Investigations Office.
