Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Two men guilty of illegal asbestos extraction

Two men responsible for asbestos removal in a former hospital pleaded guilty to improper asbestos extraction and endangering workers on January 30.

According to reports, Michael Kuovaras, 61, and Frank Rizzo, 55, both pleaded guilty to unlawful asbestos extraction in Zurbrugg Memorial Hospital in Riverside. The defendants, who reportedly operated without a license, endangered their laborers by having them work with asbestos without proper protection. A probe also found that the asbestos extracted from the hospital was buried in the same site.

Kuovaras and Rizzo, who are expected to be incarcerated, will be sentenced this April.
