Ex-supervisor gets 30 days, $15,000 fine in false highway papers case

The Roanoke paper reports here ("Kirby Richardson gets jail sentence,keeps quiet about reason for scam," 5/23/04) on the sentence handed down in the criminal case a former member of the Bedford County Board of Supervisors:

"The owner of a Rocky Mount steel fabricating company had faced 82 felony charges for his role in the scam to falsify Virginia Department of Transportation forms in November 2002. The falsified forms were comment sheets that favored a $1.1 million upgrade of turn lanes at the rural intersection of Virginia 608 and Virginia 626 in Bedford County's White House area. The forms in part influenced a majority of supervisors to approve the project."
