Ex-Apple manager charged in kickback scheme pleads guilty, forfeits $2.3M

" Paul Devine, former iPhone global supply manager for Apple, pleaded guilty on Monday to charges that he accepted kickbacks from Asian suppliers, according to Reuters. The plea, discovered in a statement from the U.S. Attorney's office in San Francisco, Calif., is a change from last August, when Devine pleaded not guilty to charges that he accepted more than a million dollars in bribes and payments.

Devine, who worked for Apple starting in 2005, was accused of providing information and assistance to six overseas suppliers. He was indicted last year on 23 counts."
