Convicted ex-Pilot Flying J president denied less strict house arrest


An East Tennessee court has rejected a request from a former Pilot Flying J executive asking the terms of his house arrest to be loosened. 

The court rejected Former Pilot Flying J President Mark Hazelwood’s request asking the court to remove his house arrest or to allow him to leave his house between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. 

Earlier this month, the court allowed Hazelwood to remain on house arrest until he finishes fighting his conviction.

Hazelwood was convicted in February of cheating trucking companies out of millions of dollars as part of a fuel rebate scheme.

He was set to start a 12 and a half year prison sentence this month.
