Stephanie Laskin and Kristofer Landell were convicted of conspiring to violate Clean Air Act regulations regarding the safe removal, handling, and disposal of the carcinogenic material at a Kingston, New York worksite, exposing their workers and the community-at-large to the risk of mesothelioma.
Project manager Landell and asbestos company owner Laskin were sentenced to eight and ten months of jail respectively after what was called a “year-long conspiracy” to violate federal and New York State Department of Labor regulations intended to prevent human exposure to asbestos.
The judge noted that the group may also be ordered to compensate any community members potentially exposed to asbestos or sickened as a result of their crimes.
