Former Sam's Club Buyer Sentenced to Probation

Posted: Updated:

A former Sam's Club buyer who admitted taking more than $245,000 in kickbacks from an Oklahoma man has been sentenced to probation.

Mark Hoffman, who was a senior buyer for Sam's Club, was accused of accepting kickbacks from David Workman of Oklahoma City. Workman was a broker for Bay Area Coffee.

Both men were charged with mail fraud and pleaded guilty in April. The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports (http://is.gd/yYz0m8 ) that U.S. District Judge Robert Dawson sentenced both men Tuesday to three years of probation and fined them each $5,000.

Court records claim that Hoffman solicited kickback payments from Workman as the Bay Area Coffee broker so that Workman could continue selling coffee to Sam's Club.

Attorneys for both men sought leniency, saying their clients had never been in trouble before.
