Former Assistant United States Attorney Sentenced for Conflict-of-Interest Violation


On July 26, 2023, a former AUSA assigned to the United States Attorney’s Office (USAO) for the Northern District of Florida was sentenced to 6 months of probation and fined $500 for one count of acts affecting a personal financial interest.  Kathryn Drey was sentenced in the Northern District of Florida.  According to the factual statement in support of the guilty plea, from on or about August 22, 2018, through on or about February 26, 2021, Drey directed contracts from the USAO for the Northern District of Florida to companies in which her spouse had a financial interest, including while she served as chief of the office’s Civil Division; Drey concealed her spouse’s financial interest in contracts to conduct title searches in litigation defended by the USAO; and Drey’s spouse then deposited money derived from the contracts into Drey’s and her spouse’s joint bank account.  The investigation was conducted by the OIG’s Miami Field Office, the OIG’s Cyber Investigations Office, and the DOJ’s Public Integrity Section.
