Sam Brinton, former senior Department of Energy (DOE) official under Joe Biden, was able to escape jail time earlier this week in a grand larceny case.
According to Clark County, Nevada, criminal court records, Brinton was ordered to pay $3,670.74 to the victim in the case and $500 in additional fees including a criminal fine. Clark County Judge Ann Zimmerman then handed Brinton a 180-day suspended jail sentence, a sentence that doesn't need to be served, and ordered Brinton to "stay out of trouble."
Authorities accused Brinton of stealing a woman’s suitcase from an airport with a total estimated worth over $3,000 on July 6, 2022.
Although Brinton was originally charged with a felony, it was knocked down to a misdemeanor charge as part of a plea deal.

Before resigning after facing charges, Brinton gained attention as a nuclear engineer who served as deputy assistant secretary for spent fuel and waste disposition in the Office of Nuclear Energy at the Department of Energy. A bio page described Brinton as “gender-fluid and use the pronouns they, them, and theirs.”
While the gender-fluid luggage lifter poured through the courts easily this time, there is no guarantee it will happen the next time.
Brinton still faces charges pertaining to an alleged theft of another woman's belongings in Minneapolis.
The case in Minnesota continues, with another hearing scheduled for Monday.
