Gregory S. Horton, who formerly served as the EVP for AOL's human resources department, reached a plea agreement with federal authorities over his theft of $100,000 from the ISP through hiring consultants at inflated rates and sharing their fees. Under the terms of the agreement, Horton will cooperate with the U.S. Attorney's office in other aspects of their investigation into the fraud. AOL spokesman Jim Whitney said he was "pleased with this outcome."
