N.J. Man Who Performed Illegal Asbestos Removal Work Sentenced
WOODBRIDGE, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — A New Jersey man who performed unsafe asbestos removal work at several schools and homes has been sentenced to five years in prison.
Acting Attorney General John Hoffman says 52-year-old William T. Muzzio on Woodbridge was sentenced Friday by Superior Court Judge Scott J. Moynihan in Union County.
Muzzio admitted in March to releasing hazardous asbestos dust and debris at a day care center in Union County.
Muzzio’s business wasn’t licensed by the state. He also admitted to unlicensed asbestos work at 12 homes in Middlesex, Union, Morris, Essex, Hudson and Ocean counties.
He was ordered to pay $19,848 in restitution as part of a plea agreement.
