Rhode Island Man Sentenced for Conspiracy To Falsify Federal Records
On January 25, 2021, the U.S. District Court for the District of Rhode Island sentenced Damir Sisic to 3 years of probation, which includes 6 months of home incarceration, 50 hours of community service, a $1,000 fine, and a $100 special assessment. On October 14, 2020, Sisic, owner of the now defunct Sisic Transport Service LLC (STS), pleaded guilty to conspiracy to falsify Federal records.
According to the information, from approximately January 2018 through May 2019, Sisic allegedly conspired to falsify the hours of service listed in STS drivers’ electronic logs. STS truck drivers were routinely exceeding the maximum number of driving hours and “on duty” hours, without spending the required hours off duty. Sisic concealed this information from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).
DOT-OIG conducted this investigation with FMCSA’s assistance.
