Anatoliy “Tony” Kirik, a resident of Rochester, NY, has been charged with making false statements to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and the Department of Transportation in an attempt to conceal a negative safety rating. If Mr. Kirik is convicted he could face up to five years in prison and a fine of $250,000.
As stated in the criminal complaint filed against Mr. Kirik, “The defendant owned and controlled a trucking business called Dallas Logistics. The company was put in the name of a nominee owner to conceal the fact that it was affiliated with another trucking company, Orange Transportation, that Kirik also controlled. Orange Transportation had received a negative rating from the Department of Transportation, and that negative rating would have been applied to Dallas Logistics had the true relationship between the two entities been disclosed to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. In order to prevent the government from learning that the two entities were related and affiliated, Kirik directed his employees to create and present false documents and representations to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.”
