COEUR D’ALENE—Trevor Mokry, 33, of Plummer, Idaho, was sentenced today in United States District Court in Coeur d’Alene for aiding the transportation of stolen goods, U.S. Attorney Wendy J. Olson announced. U.S. District Judge Edward J. Lodge sentenced Mokry to 18 months in federal prison and three years of supervised release. He was also ordered to pay $581,445.24 in restitution to the victim. He pleaded guilty to the charge on April 23, 2012.
According to court records, between June 2007 and June 2011, Mokry aided and abetted the unlawful transportation of stolen lumber while employed by Stimson Lumber Company of Plummer. According to the plea agreement, Mokry worked in the lumber yard and was responsible for loading and unloading trucks. He admitted that he entered into an unauthorized “mill direct” sales arrangement with a business located in Spokane, Washington, which involved the business’ driver traveling from Spokane to Plummer to pick up lumber and then returning to Spokane. Mokry loaded the truck and received a check from the driver for the lumber. According to the plea agreement, Mokry sold Stimson’s lumber to the Spokane business without the Stimson Lumber’s permission or knowledge and never paid Stimson for the lumber. Mokry admitted that he was paid $581,445.24 for the lumber.
The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
