Apple security chief charged with bribery

Apple’s security chief ‘Thomas Moyer’ has been charged for allegedly bribing two Californian police officers in exchange for concealed gun licenses for the tech group’s employees.

Mr Moyer was accused of offering iPads to County Undersheriff Rick Sung and Sheriff Captain James Jensen last year.

According to the prosecutors’ statement, Mr Moyer offered 200 iPads in exchange for four gun licences.

Apple has defended Mr Moyer with his lawyer ‘Ed Swanson’ stating that he had done nothing wrong and had become “collateral damage” in a feud between the Santa Clara district attorney and the local sheriff’s office.
