A New York Federal judge recently sentenced two contractors to prison. The contractors were put in jail for a combined 6 years because they did not properly complete asbestos removal jobs which they were hired to complete.
The individuals were contracted to remove asbestos from contaminated buildings. They did not do the job properly and left behind asbestos leaving others at risk. Further they did not properly dispose of the asbestos in some cases. The two men pleaded guilty to Clean Air Act violations and were forced to pay nearly a million dollars in damages.
