HASLAMS-INVESTIGATION
Truck-stop co. owned by Cleveland Browns owner, Tenn. governor, won't face criminal charges

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Tuesday, July 15, 2014 4:37 AM EDT
NASHVILLE, Tenn.


The truck-stop company owned by Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam and Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam may have put the worst behind it after federal attorneys agreed not to prosecute Pilot Flying J for cheating customers.

In an agreement with prosecutors, the nation's largest diesel retailer acknowledges that employees cheated trucking companies out of promised fuel rebates and discounts. Prosecutors said Monday that Pilot has agreed to pay a $92 million penalty, which is within the range of what the company would pay if convicted at trial.

Since federal agents raided Pilot's Knoxville, Tennessee, headquarters in April 2013, 10 former employees have pleaded guilty to the scheme to defraud customers. CEO Jimmy Haslam has said he had no knowledge of the scheme. Gov. Bill Haslam has said he isn't involved in Pilot's day-to-day operations.
