A Rocky Hill man who manages the Wisla Express LLC, transportation company was arrested last week for allegedly falsifying and destroying driving records, according to the United States Attorney for Connecticut.
Dariusz Stzeborowski, 46, was charged with one count of conspiracy and two counts of concealing records on Dec. 8. He appeared in federal court Wednesday and entered a plea of not guilty.
Wisla Express is a New Britain-based livery company that take clients to and from airports with vans and minibuses. Stzeborowski was in charge of the day-to-day operations of Wisla Express, where he scheduled driving assignments and maintained records for the company, according to a release from United States Attorney of Connecticut.
Stzeborowski assigned the drivers shifts that exceeded regulated driving times and had the drivers falsify logs by saying they were off the clock when they were still working, according to U.S. Attorney David B. Fein. Drivers were told to supply Stzeborowski with separate sheets with the hours they actually worked, which would be destroyed later, Fein added.
“Federal regulations on passenger-carrying vehicles exist to keep drivers, passengers and American highways safe,” Fein said. “We take most seriously the intentional violation of these important laws by transportation companies and their employees.”
For each count of concealing records, Stzeborowski could face up to 20 years and five years for conspiracy.
