by | Sep 1, 2015 | alcohol beverage law, PLCB

James Short was the director of marketing and merchandising for the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (PLCB) from 2003-2012. He was responsible for deciding which products the PLCB stores would sell and which would be discontinued. Short was charged with taking money in exchange for preferring certain products over others in the PLCB retail stores. Federal prosecutors said he received cash, meals, tickets to events, and all-expense paid trips from at least one manufacturer and wholesaler. Short is expected to plead guilty, but no date has been set.
