Mail and wire fraud

April 2, 2014 - 1:40pm

The fraud trial of Flying Tigers and its president, Jay Stout, began last Friday in Philadelphia federal court before U.S. District Judge Harvey Bartle III. One of the prosecution’s primary witnesses is Stout’s son Joel, who is awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty in March last year to one count of fraud and six counts of mail fraud. Both Stouts, the company and mechanic/inspector Howard “Bud” Gunter were indicted in August 2012 for allegedly charging aircraft owners for inspections that were not conducted by FAA-certified inspectors.
