OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A former purchasing director for Quest
Energy Partners LP has received a two-year prison sentence for
failing to report to authorities that $1 million had been taken
from the company illegally.
U.S. District Judge Stephen Friot also ordered 52-year-old Brent
Mueller of Edmond to pay more than $1 million in restitution and
perform 104 hours of community service.
Mueller had pleaded guilty in federal court in March.
U.S. Attorney Sanford Coats says that in the summer of 2008,
Mueller learned the company's now-former chief financial officer
had illegally wired $1 million out of Quest to use for a personal
investment in a hydrogen fuel technology company.
Mueller acknowledged an attempt to cover up that crime.
