Two brothers from Utica, New York have been brought to trial for running an illegal asbestos removal company. According to prosecutors, the brothers have been illegally removing asbestos from all over the Central New York area. This violates the terms of the conviction of one of the brothers, who was barred in 2003 from being involved in an asbestos removal company after violations of the Clean Air Law.
If convicted, the brother with the record faces up to 55 years in prison and a fine of up to $2.5 million, while the other brother could face up to five years in prison and a fine of $250,00. The severity of these punishments is indicative of the dangers of unsafely removing asbestos.
