Volkswagen gets sentenced to probation

Volkswagen has been sentenced for its role in Dieselgate, and the sentence is… not too bad.

Volkswagen AG was sentenced to three years of probation and independent oversight as a result of its diesel emissions scandal. Not only did US District Judge Sean Cox hand down that punishment in Detroit, he also approved a $2.8 billion criminal fine.

The automaker did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
