TULSA - A federal judge sentenced four people to probation Monday in a conspiracy involving fake work certificates at the Tar Creek Superfund site.
Gary Beshears received three years' probation, and his wife, Cheryl Beshears, got two years'. A U.S. senior district judge also fined the Bartlesville couple $1,000 each.
Gary Curtis Brown of Bristow received three years' probation and a $1,000 fine, and William Noller of Tulsa received four years' probation and a $2,000 fine.
Beshears Trucking Co. was contracted to haul soil contaminated with lead from the Tar Creek Superfund site. Drivers were required to have certification before starting work.
Prosecutors said the Beshearses sent truckers to Brown to receive false certificates.Archive ID: 771296
