Yes, unfortunately, the Volkswagen dieselgate scandal is STILL in the news. Just recently a Volkswagen executive plead guilty in federal court to conspiring to mislead the U.S. government and break emission laws, according to The Drive. Oliver Schmidt plead guilty to the charges in U.S. District Court in Detroit and could face up to seven years in prison and a fine ranging anywhere from $40,000 to $400,000, according to Reuters. Schmidt is one of eight current and former Volkswagen executives who have been charged by the Department of Justice over the emissions cheating scandal. Last March, Volkswagen pled guilty to three felony counts filed against the company by the U.S. government, agreeing to pay $4.3 billion in fines. Are you happy they’re getting held accountable or do you care?
