Former FBI janitor gets 3 years in prison for obstruction

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) – A former janitor at the FBI Little Rock office was sentenced to more than three years in prison for taking a picture of a drug-trafficking chart and sharing it with one of the targets in the investigation. Sixty-three-year-old Billy Wayne Smith pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice on Aug. 15 and was sentenced Wednesday. According to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, Smith said he wasn’t trying to undercut his coworkers, just simply wanted to help a friend whose photograph he recognized on the chart of investigative targets.
