WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) — A former supervisor who was accused of trying to cover up fuel contamination at the Indian Point nuclear plant has pleaded guilty to a federal charge.
Daniel Wilson reached a plea agreement under which prosecutors agreed not to seek a sentence longer than six months, the U.S. attorney’s office said.
He pleaded guilty Wednesday to violating regulations of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
Wilson was chemistry manager at Indian Point in February 2011 when diesel fuel for emergency generators was found to contain excessive particulate matter. The complaint said he faked a test to show the problem had been solved, then lied about it.
Wilson is scheduled to be sentenced in January.
