Philadelphia Man Imprisoned, Fined for 13 Counts of CDL Fraud
William Nicastro of Philadelphia, PA, was sentenced by a U.S. District Court judge in Philadelphia to 1 year in prison, $1,800 in fines, and mandatory drug and alcohol treatment after being found guilty on 13 counts of commercial driver’s license (CDL) fraud. The charges included making false statements to DOT, identity theft, and bank fraud. Nicastro is currently serving the remainder of a 3-year state sentence he received for a joint Pennsylvania and DOT OIG prosecution for forgery. While using the identity and CDL of one of his victims, Nicastro kidnapped a prostitute in Philadelphia and raped her repeatedly while driving a commercial motor vehicle from Philadelphia to Baltimore. After serving the 3-year forgery sentence and the 1-year Federal sentence, Nicastro will begin serving a 25- to 50-year sentence for the kidnapping.
