Public Data Ferret: State Reports UW Prof Got Job For Unqualified Daughter

September 27, 2011

On the heels of a mid-July state report that a University of Washington professor took a contract fee from a state agency for work he never delivered, and following another 2011 case which sparked a criminal prosecution against an alleged embezzler in the University's Medical Center, comes an additional indication Sept. 26 of ethical troubles at the state's flagship institution of higher learning. According to a Washington State Auditor's Office whistleblower investigation report just released, a professor in the UW Medical Center's Pediatrics Division of Neo-nataology appears to have violated state ethics law by using her position to get a job for her unqualified daughter as a research scientist and engineer assistant. The professor's name, released by the auditor's office in response to a media inquiry, is Sandra Juul Ledbetter and her daughter's name is Kelly Ledbetter.
