Paul Devine, formerly Apple’s Global Supply Manager, has received a year of jail time as well as a fine of $4.5 million for leaking the company’s secrets.

Devine leaked secret product plans to a number of accessory manufacturers in return for money. This comes after Devine pleaded guilty to  wire fraud, money laundering, and conspiracy over 3 years ago. Devine reportedly made $1 Million on the leaks, after working for Apple between 2005 and 2010. As MacRumors points out, it was initially suggested that Devine could receive up to 20 years in jail over his crime, so it’s intriguing that he received such a comparatively small sentence.
