A U.S. District Judge
in Denver has recommended a trucking company owner pay restitution for making
false statements to the U.S. Department of Transportation by aiding relief
efforts for the terrorists' attacks.
Judge Wiley Y. Daniel
ordered Roy Clennin to pay restitution of $24,918 but requested transportation
officials consider turning the restitution over to relief efforts for the
attacks on New York City and Washington, DC.
Clennin, who operates
Clennin Ranch Trucking in Rye, pleaded guilty this spring to allowing drivers
for his company to falsify logs they had to keep for the DOT, according to
The Pueblo Chieftain. He also pleaded guilty to being a felon in possession
of firearms found at his business-residential address when federal agents
executed a search warrant.
The judge also ordered
Clennin to serve four months of home detention wearing an electronic device.
He also will be on probation for four years.
A decision by investigators
to accept Judge Daniel's recommendation wasn't immediately available.
