Two South Georgia Physicians Sentenced for Conspiracy To Falsify DOT Records
On November 14, 2018, Dr. John A. Glenn, Jr., and Dr. Mark Griffis were sentenced in U.S. District Court, Dublin, Georgia, for their roles in a conspiracy to falsify records with intent to impede the proper administration of DOT. Glenn was sentenced to 15 months’ incarceration, 3 years’ supervised release, a $3,000 fine, and $4,900 in special assessment and court costs. Griffis received a sentence of 30 months’ incarceration, 3 years’ supervised release, and a $6,000 fine. Glenn was indicted in March 2018 and pleaded guilty in May, and Griffis was convicted by jury trial in June.
DOT-OIG’s investigation revealed that Glenn and Griffis routinely signed DOT Medical Examiner’s Certificates and Medical Examination Reports for commercial driver’s license holders without examining the drivers.
DOT-OIG and the Drug Enforcement Administration are investigating this case, with assistance from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
