St. Louis (Mesothelioma Cancer News) – A Missouri man has been sentenced in a case stemming from his allegedly filing asbestos inspection reports that were falsified. As reported by KSDK, Calvin Burks, 57, was sentenced this week after pleading guilty to felony charges last year in connection with the fraud.
As noted in the report, Banks, who owns J&C Environmental Services, Incorporated, admitted to creating the fictitious reports, after inspecting over 100 St. Louis buildings that were supposed to be demolished, charging inspection fees, and using a previously written official report to present falsified information to demolition contractors. Owners of the buildings purportedly used the fictitious information for reports filed with the city in connection with demolition and renovation plans.
As further noted in the report, the incidents reportedly occurred from April 2008 to May 2009.
