Albert "Jack" Stanley is a former officer and director of Kellogg, Brown & Root, Inc., which during part of the relevant period was a subsidiary of Halliburton Inc. KBR is a global engineering, construction, and services company that was part of a four-company joint venture seeking to obtain contracts to build liquefied natural gas facilities on Bonny Island, Nigeria. From 1994 to 2004, Mr. Stanley was involved in a scheme to bribe Nigerian government officials to obtain contracts from the Nigeria LNG Limited. As part of the steering group for the joint venture, Mr. Stanley authorized the joint venture to hire two agents to pay bribes to Nigerian officials to induce them to award four contracts to the joint venture. Mr. Stanley also met in Nigeria and London with high-ranking Nigerian officials to discuss the designation of a representative with whom the joint venture should negotiate bribes to the government officials.

Following a guilty plea in 2008, on February 23, 2012, Stanley was sentenced to 30 months in prison followed by three years supervised release.

Stanley was the first of the KBR defendants to cooperate with the authorities. On February 23, 2012, Stanley was sentenced to 30 months in prison followed by three years supervised release. Stanley had originally faced an 84-month sentence, but was granted less because federal prosecutors deemed his cooperation to be substantial enough to recommend leniency. Stanley had previously agreed to pay $10.8 million in restitution.
