According to court records, an auto company hired Hall to transport plastic crates filled with parts. After transporting the parts, Hall was required to return the empty crates to a facility in Detroit.
Instead, he took the plastic crates and sold them to a plastic recycling company for about $460,000. The value of the stolen plastic crates to the auto company was about $2.92 million.
Hall also failed to file a 2012 federal income tax return on behalf of RAMA, which required him to pay the IRS $142,069 in taxes.
In addition to the prison time, U.S. Court Judge Terrence G. Berg ordered Hall to serve three years of supervised release and to pay restitution of $2.91 million to the automobile company and $142,069 to the IRS.
