Former Airtrans Recruiter Sentenced for Deceptions Regarding Bogus CDL Applications

Robert L. Savely, a recruiter and safety officer for Airtrans, a now-defunct trucking company, was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Memphis, TN, for making false statements regarding fraudulent commercial driver license applications he helped prepare at the former Dyersburg, TN trucking company. Savely instructed new commercial drivers to falsify the employment history section on their application in order to meet the minimum driving experience required by Airtrans' insurance provider. Savely was sentenced to two years probation and a $750 fine. This is an ongoing joint investigation of OIG, the FBI, and U.S. Postal Inspection Service.
