Four Georgia Men Indicted for False Statements and Conspiracy to Violate FMCSA Imminent Hazard Order
On May 14, 2013, Devasko Lewis, Corey Daniels, Lacey Lewis, and Calvin Outlaw were indicted in U.S. District Court, Macon, Georgia, for false statements and conspiracy to criminally violate an Imminent Hazard Out-of-Service Order issued by FMCSA. In October 2008, Devasko Lewis, doing business as Lewis Trucking Company, was placed under an order to cease all operations due to serious violations discovered during a compliance review FMCSA conducted after a fatal crash in Alabama that killed seven State of Alabama prison guards. In July 2011, Lewis formed DDL Transport, LLC, which was ultimately placed under another order. In May 2012, Lewis pleaded guilty to violating the orders and was subsequently sentenced to 6 months incarceration and 12 months supervised release.
While on supervised release, Lewis was ordered to not be involved in the operation of any trucking company. However, Lewis obtained DOT numbers for Eagle Transport and Eagle Trans using the identity of friends, including Daniels, and failing to reveal his involvement to FMCSA as owner/operator of the companies. After reporting to Federal prison in November 2012, Lewis continued operating Eagle Trans with the assistance of Lacey Lewis, Daniels, and Outlaw.
We are conducting this investigation with assistance from FMCSA and the Georgia Department of Public Safety.
