NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE- Two employees of the Pilot truck stop chain owned by the family of Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam pleaded guilty in federal court. Regional sales director Arnold Ralenkotter admitted to one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and accounts representative Ashley Smith Judd also pleaded guilty to conspiracy. The feds contend Pilot's sales team deliberately withheld rebates to boost profits and pad sales commissions. The two were the first to be charged in the investigation. The Pilot chain is based in Knoxville and is run by Jimmy Haslam, the governor's brother.
