4 ex-employees accused in Pilot rebate scam reach plea deal

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Four former employees accused in a diesel fuel rebate scam at the nation's largest truck stop chain have struck a plea deal and agreed to cooperate with federal authorities.

Pilot Flying J is run by Jimmy Haslam, owner of the Cleveland Browns and brother of Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam, who also has a stake in the company. Both have said they had no knowledge of the scheme, which led to criminal charges against executives at the company and an $85 million settlement with some of the defrauded customers as well as a $92 million penalty to the government.

The company said in a statement that it was "saddened" by the news that former employees admitted participating in the scheme. Company officials said they have "made whole every customer negatively affected" and taken steps to make sure this never happens again.
