Former Arrow Trucking CEO Doug Pielsticker has appealed the sentence he received earlier this month in federal court. Pielsticker was sentenced to 7.5 years in prison and ordered to pay $21 million in restitution October 9, 2015.

Federal prosecutors say he forged company invoices to get more money from the bank and fund his lavish lifestyle. Pielsticker pleaded guilty to bank fraud and tax fraud as part of a plea agreement.

Pielsticker addressed the court just before he was sentenced. He apologized for his actions, saying he's sorry to his family, the court, and the people of Arrow. He said he's a different person than he was six years ago.
