Stanley N. Waddy Jr., a former commercial trucker for Tapscott Trucking in Thornburg, VA, was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Philadelphia to time served in prison on state charges (16 months) and put on five years of probation. Waddy pleaded guilty on January 5 to ten counts of making false statements to DOT for falsifying his driver logbook to hide how long he had been driving without rest. On December 12, 2001, Waddy, after using marijuana, caused a six-vehicle crash that killed two people in Ridley Township, PA. He was convicted on state charges related to the fatal crash and completed serving his jail time in December 2003.
