An FBI special agent who helped crack medicine-dilution and price-fixing cases will present a lecture on business ethics next month at Kansas University.
Robert Herndon's lecture, "Diluted Trust: Moral Failure and White-Collar Crime," is set for 7 p.m. April 17 in Woodruff Auditorium at the Kansas Union. The event is free and open to the public.
Herndon investigated the case of Robert Courtney, a Kansas City-area pharmacist who pleaded guilty in 2002 to diluted chemotherapy drugs that he dispensed to cancer patients. Herndon also worked on an earlier criminal investigation of price-fixing at ADM.
Herndon's talk is the 2006 Walter S. Sutton Ethics Lecture, presented by the KU International Center for Ethics in Business and the KU Business School.
