SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) - A former commercial driver’s license examiner is pleading guilty to falsifying test results.
40-year-old Christopher Pender of Stonewall entered the plea Wednesday to one count of making and using a false document before U.S. District Judge Elizabeth Foote.
Pender, who gave commercial driver’s license skills tests, certified that an applicant had passed the federally required test in November 2014 when the applicant never took the test. Foote took cash for the fake certificate, allowing the applicant to obtain a Louisiana commercial driver’s license.
Pender is scheduled to be sentenced Sept. 8. He faces up to five years in prison and $250,000 in fines.
