Uber rideshare driver pleads guilty to conspiring to bribe an Uber driver

A man who used Uber to facilitate the illegal use of his own taxi company has pleaded guilty to conspiracy and conspiracy to commit money laundering.

The man, identified only as “Mr. A,” was sentenced to four years in prison by a federal judge in Sacramento.

The court also ordered that Uber pay a $4 million penalty to the government.

In May, the California Public Utilities Commission fined Uber more than $2 million.

The company says it has been cooperating with authorities.

Uber did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
