Georgia Man Sentenced for Violating a FMCSA Imminent Hazard Out of Service Order
On May 29, 2014, Calvin Outlaw was sentenced in U.S. District Court, Macon, Georgia, to conspiracy to violate an Imminent Hazard Out-of-Service Order issued by Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). Outlaw was sentenced to ten months incarceration followed by one year of supervised release.
Our investigation determined that Outlaw violated the Imminent Hazard Out-of-Service Order by driving trucks for Lewis Trucking Company, knowing that the company was operating under the order.
The Imminent Hazard Out-of-Service Order against Lewis was issued following an October 2008 fatal crash that killed seven in Alabama. Lewis was ordered to cease all operations.
This investigation was conducted with assistance from FMCSA and the Georgia Department of Public Safety.
