Three former employees of the truck stop company owned by the family of Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam and Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam have pleaded guilty to federal charges involving a scheme where trucking companies were cheated out of promised fuel rebates.

The three entered their pleas Monday. They are among 10 former Pilot Flying J employees to plead guilty since federal agents raided the company's Knoxville headquarters last year.

One of the former employees who appeared in court Monday is Brian Mosher, a former director of sales, who admitted to training other company employees on how to cheat customers.

Company CEO Jimmy Haslam has denied involvement in the rebate scheme. Gov. Bill Haslam says he is not involved with the company's operations. The company has been forced to pay millions because of the fraud.
