In a motion for a new trial filed yesterday, the new defense team for former Pilot Flying J president Mark Hazelwood blames his former attorney, a judge and federal prosecutors for his conviction in a fraud scheme, Knoxnews reports. Among other accusations, the motion blames U.S. District Judge Curtis Collier for allowing prosecutors to air recordings of Hazelwood using racial slurs and singing a racist song. Hazelwood is currently awaiting sentencing in the scheme, in which Pilot Flying J employees schemed to defraud smaller trucking companies.
