Indianapolis-based trucking company Celadon Group, Inc., has agreed to pay $42.2 million in restitution to shareholders, $7 million of which will be credited to a disgorgement pursuant to agreement with the SEC, to settle allegations of accounting fraud.  Celadon was alleged to have avoided the recognition of $20 million in impairment charges and losses by recording a series of equipment trades as sales at inflated values.  Celadon management is further alleged to have falsely stated to its auditors that the equipment was sold at fair market value. Celadon has entered into a deferred prosecution agreement calling for specific compliance measures and cooperation in ongoing investigation of the accounting fraud.  SEC; DOJ; USAO SD IN
