Attorney General Michael Delaney and Special Agent-in-Charge Michael Hubbard of the United States Environmental Protection Agency's Criminal Investigation Division announce that, on October 21, 2010, Roberto Hernandez-Lopez (Age: 48) pled guilty to two criminal violations of New Hampshire's Asbestos Management and Control Laws. The convictions, Class B felonies, arose out of Mr. Hernandez-Lopez's submission of a false name and social security number on his 2010 New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services' asbestos abatement worker licensing application.
Superior Court Justice Hon. Larry M. Smukler accepted the plea agreement between the State of New Hampshire and the Defendant and imposed concurrent sentences of six months in the Merrimack County House of Corrections, with 59 days of the sentences suspended on condition of good behavior for a period of two years.
The convictions in this case are the result of a cooperative investigation involving the New Hampshire Attorney General's Office, the United States Environmental Protection Agency's Criminal Investigation Division, the United States Social Security Administration – Office of the Inspector General, US Department of Homeland Security – Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the Concord Police Department.
