Ex-highways Supervisor Gets Probation For Lying to FBI


A former West Virginia Division of Highways supervisor who admitted lying to the FBI has received probation.

Edward Matthew Tuttle was sentenced on Wednesday to three years of probation. The 39-year-old Buckhannon resident had pleaded guilty in August 2014 to making a false statement to a federal agent.

U.S. Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld II said Thursday that Tuttle made false statements to an FBI agent during an investigation of the DOH's Equipment Division.

Tuttle formerly served as a supervisor with the Equipment Division and as the DOH highway administrator in Upshur County.
