CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — Four former Pilot Flying J employees entered guilty pleas in a Chattanooga courtroom Wednesday afternoon and will avoid prison time for their involvement in a scheme to cheat some fuel customers of promised rebates.
Chris Andrews, Kevin Clark, Michael Fenwick, and Katy Bibee admitted they took part in the scheme that cost trucking customers millions.
Senior U.S. District Court Judge Curtis L. Collier sentenced Andrews and Fenwick to three years probation, and Clark will spend two years on probation. All three will also have to pay $100 in court costs. In addition to the court costs, Fenwick was sentenced to pay a $4,000 fine and Clark was sentenced to a $3,000 fine.
The trio pleaded guilty on information before they were actually indicted, court records show.
Bibbee, who pleaded guilty on her indictment, was sentenced to three years supervised probation and $100 in court costs.
All four were released from mandatory drug testing, records show.
Last year, a judge sentenced former company President Mark Hazelwood to more than 12 years in prison.
