    Jail For Asbestos Test Fraud - By Jordan Barab, Confined Space
    Last week, Timothy Carroll was sentenced to 28 months in prison for falsifying asbestos air sampling results. Carrol was falsifying the reports to help Alex Salvagno and his father, Raul, who conducted illegal asbestos removal in up to 1,555 buildings throughout New York over a ten year period. They even paid homeless persons $4 an hour to remove the asbestos. The Salvagnos were found guilty of racketeering and conspiracy to violate environmental laws for rushing asbestos-abatement.
