Rhode Island Man Charged with Conspiracy to Falsify Federal Records
On August 24, 2020, the U.S. Attorney’s Office filed an information with the U.S. District Court for the District of Rhode Island charging Damir Sisic—owner of Sisic Transport Service LLC (STS)—with conspiracy to falsify Federal records.
According to the information, from approximately January 2018 through May 2019, Sisic allegedly conspired to falsify STS driver's hours of service electronic logs. The information stated he concealed that STS truck drivers were routinely exceeding the maximum number of driving hours and "on duty" hours, without the required hours off-duty, from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).
DOT-OIG is conducting this investigation with the assistance of the FMCSA.
