Ronald Shabbot pleaded guilty on October 22 to falsifying an FAA return-to-service tag on an aircraft computer indicator. He was sentenced to 24 months probation. While working as a salesman at an aircraft parts repair facility in Fort Worth, Shabbot stole a computer indicator from inventory. He then forged another repair facility’s information on a return-to-service tag, indicating the part was in good working order and could be installed on an aircraft. Shabbot then advertised and sold the computer indicator on eBay.
