Probation and Babysitters, How the Emissions Scheme Keeps Costing VW

Volkswagen has been sentenced to 3-years probation by a federal court, according to CarComplaints.com:

“…Volkswagen was nailed with felony counts for conspiracy to defraud the U.S. and consumers, engaging in wire fraud, violating the federal Clean Air Act, obstruction of justice and for importing merchandise by means of false statements.

Maybe next time they’ll think twice before defrauding customers and shredding thousands of documents during an open investigation (ok, probably not).

For the next 3 years, the automaker will be under the watchful eye of Former Deputy U.S. Attorney General Larry D. Thompson and his team of experts in corporate monitoring.
