So let me get this straight. Employee sets up the whole scam, tells his friends
that he gets gats for free, lets them in and allows them to fill up their cars.
This same mastermind ends up taking a plea so that the DA (former Utah grad) can
throw the book at an ex-BYU player who probably thought the whole thing was
legit and filled his car up a couple of times.Ahh, Utah politics at
work. How many man hours are going into this charade?
So one former Coug said that when he is making 50-60K that the Utes will be
pumping his gas. Ironic that this former cougar made substantially more money
than that, but pumped his own gas, and did it illegally. Wow! My understanding
is that a former Ute is going to be the DA in charge of the case. Maybe now the
funny little saying should go, "when I'm making millions, they will be in
charge of prosecuting me".
lighten up its not like they ran Enron
@KougerI think you need to find a repair shot. Your sarcasm
detector is broken.
Will Ofahengaue and Mahe be charged along with the TCG for these crimes too?
Make them pay back the gas, and reduce the felony to a misdemeanor. I just
don't see these guys as being a threat to society. Stupid, yes. Criminal, no.
We have enough people in prison, They already had to pay for the gas in a civil
suit. Drop it, our tax dollars are better spent convicting people who are a
danger to society, not opportunists that swipe some gas.
@whoa nellie:Have you come down with the Obama-flu? I hope it's not going
to be a permanent illness for you - blaming Bush. Why not blame Bush for bad
weather too? FYI, when Obama took office the price of gas was not even two
dollars - $1.70ish! Now it's 3.50ish - that's 100% increase ...Whoooa Nellie!!!
Make them all guests of the State in Draper for a number of years. Hit them with
the maximum penalty allowed. No one gets midnight fillups and believes it is
legitimate. They are all thieves.
Amen, XelaDave, I couldn't have said it better. Just a general note
to anyone: if somebody tells you anything is free and totally legal, but it
needs to be done during the hours of Midnight and 2 AM in order to receive it
and it can only be redeemed at one place in the entire state, and then says to
you, "It's probably best if you not mention this to anyone else", you
may want to question the validity of it's "legalness"....Just saying.....
Rise and shout and avoid the payout.
This has to be George Bush's fault. If gas prices weren't so high these poor
people would not have to resort to theft in order to be able to drive to the
church to play ball.
When you claim you are not aware of stealing but go between 11 pm and 2 am each
time- hmmmmm sounds like a nice defense- if something is to good to be true and
you have to do it after hours in the dark- the moral right and wrong switch must
be broken- and simply paying back is not a reasonable penalty- if that were the
case I can think of many things people might try and do if all I had to face was
simply paying for it if I get caught
pay them back the gas, end of story.
I do not desire to play down what the "friends" of the employee did,
but it kind of sits the wrong way with me, that the perpetrator, Evers, will get
his hands slapped, while his "friends" go to prison, just because he
has been offerred a plea bargain. I hope the judge is smart enough to disallow
the plea bargain and let the court take its chances on convicting all of them,
including Evers. Why do they need Evers to plea bargain - they have the video
tape as evidence and probably other evidence. This does not make sense. If
they allow Evers to plea bargain, they ought to allow the others to come in and
plead to reduced charges and avoid prison, also. I'm just sayin. . . .
Reputation lost over a few dollars of gas. Brilliant
Boy, these boys are a class act!
