The owner of a Melbourne, FL, truck driving school faces trial on 13 felony counts after allegedly paying students to work at his home or business while giving them credit for CDL classes they never attended.

According to Florida Today, 51-year-old Joseph Neal Smith’s Interstate Trucking Academy began offering CDL testing in 2004.

State officials ordered more than 700 of his students to retest for their CDLs.
