SBTC is standing up for a trucker involved in an accident whom we believe was treated too harshly with this 110-year sentence. We have not called for a boycott, but do understand grassroots truckers' anger. We have offered our assistance to the state of Colorado in the spirit of dispute resolution to avert a supply chain disaster as winter is now here and the residents of Colorado need to receive their home heating oil, gasoline, baby formula, ect.

Join 4.5 million people who have signed the Petition to grant clemency to trucker.

In the aftermath of SBTC's complaint to US Attorney General calling for DOJ investigation, Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman removes Vechirko from path of criminal prosecution. In late 2020, SBTC widely disseminated a video released by Vechirko's defense team that showed a thug pointing a gun at Vechirko's head and firing at his gasoline tanker. It appears Hennepin County has acquiesced to SBTC's zealous demands they drop the charges. No indication in court hearing yesterday that they have deviated from this path. SBTC Executive Director James Lamb:

"It appears the interests of justice have been served."
