Fleet owner admits to falsifying drivers’ logs

Damir Sisic, the owner of now-defunct Woonsocket, Rhode Island-based Sisic Transportation Service (STS), admitted the he “altered thousands of electronic entries in service logbooks for approximately 20 drivers in order to conceal the actual drive time and on-duty time of drivers,” according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Rhode Island.

Sisic owned about 11 tractors and 10 van trailers and employed between seven and 10 drivers at a time. Each truck was equipped with an ELD.

According to court documents, Sisic provided altered driving records to a state trooper investigating the fatality of an STS driver who was driving an STS truck in Oklahoma in April 2018. Additionally, Sisic provided altered driving records for numerous STS drivers to an FMCSA investigator during a compliance review.

Sisic pleaded guilty to conspiracy to falsify records, and he is scheduled to be sentenced on Jan. 7.
