Two More Commercial Truckers Fined in Ontelaunee Case for Falsified Logbooks
In the ongoing Ontelaunee Transport Services case, two additional commercial drivers were fined by a U.S. District Court judge in Philadelphia, PA, for making false statements in their driver’s daily logbook. David Thompson was fined $2,000 on January 13, and Sean Eck, $1,000 on January 15. The men are among seven Ontelaunee truck drivers who pleaded guilty to falsifying the entries to conceal the fact that they were driving over the maximum number of hours allowed under FMCSA regulations, thereby jeopardizing public safety. Both men pleaded guilty in October 2003.
