Fifty-eight-year-old Valerijs Belovs, who was sentenced Monday, pleaded guilty in October to making 15 false entries in his driver's logbook before the January 2009 crash that killed 49-year-old David Schreffler.
Federal authorities said Belovs said he was resting when he was actually driving. Safe-driving rules bar truckers from driving more than 11 hours a day without resting 10 hours.
Authorities said Belovs' rig had a falsified inspection sticker at the time of the crash.
Belovs was sentenced in Montgomery County Court in April 2010 to three to 23 months in jail on probation on a vehicular homicide charge.
