CHICAGO (AP) - A former owner of an airline fuel company has been sentenced to four years in prison for his part in a kickback scheme to defraud Illinois-based Ryan International Airlines.
A U.S. Department of Justice statement on Thursday said Sean E. Wagner was sentenced in federal court in West Palm Beach, Florida. He also must pay more than $200,000 in restitution.
Wagner is the one-time owner and operator of Florida-based Aviation Fuel International Inc. He pleaded guilty earlier this year to one count of conspiracy to commit honest services wire fraud.
