Not So Fast, But Still Quite Furious -- The Sentencing of Scott Salyer, the Controversial Figure Behind the Labyrinthine 'Operation Rotten Tomato,' Is Continued to October 17 or Later

Supporters of the Former Owner and CEO of SK Foods Have Launched a Website That Includes Details of the Entire Case and Regular Updates

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 31, 2012) - Think Operation Fast and Furious, the most expansive of the ATF's gunwalking sting operations, is colorful, convoluted and controversial?

In amount of sheer detail, it's small potatoes compared to Operation Rotten Tomato, the name Federal investigators gave to the case against Scott Salyer, former owner and CEO of SK Foods LP who was charged, along with several associates, with inflating prices of processed tomatoes.

On March 23, 2012, Salyer signed a Plea Agreement for two counts of what was a 12 count indictment before Judge Lawrence K. Karlton at the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California. The deal states that the Government cannot ask the Judge for more than seven years.

Salyer's sentencing, which was postponed to September 5, 2012 has been continued again to October 17, 2012 or a later date.

Supporters of Salyer have launched a website which can be accessed from two addresses: www.operationrottentomato.com and www.scott-salyer.com.

Thus far, the still evolving site includes a home page that has links to an "Open Letter from Scott Salyer" and an article about the "Government's Physical Handling of Scott Salyer." Sections include "The Case," a legal brief dedicated to the essentials; "The Man," featuring Salyer's resume; "Breaking News," which will include case updates; a "Case Blog" for relevant postings; and "Related Documents." The website's email address is OperationRottenTomato@gmail.com.
