Scott D. Sullivan
Scott D. Sullivan was an American Certified Public Accountant and the former Chief Financial Officer, Treasurer, Board member and Secretary of WorldCom, who was convicted as part of WorldCom's $3.8 billion accounting fraud, the largest scandal of its kind at the time in U.S. history.
Sullivan entered a guilty plea and was sentenced to five years in prison as part of a plea agreement in which Sullivan testified against former WorldCom CEO Bernard Ebbers, who received a 25-year sentence (the maximum sentence that Sullivan could have received if he had not accepted the plea agreement and was found guilty).
Sullivan graduated from the State University of New York at Oswego in 1983, and was awarded the Anniversary Class Award for alumni in 1998. He attended Bethlehem Central High School in Delmar, New York.
Scott Sullivan was released from jail in August, 2009, after serving four years of his sentence. He was required to be on "home confinement" for another year.
