Crane inspector gets 2 year sentence

From the NY Post:

The former chief crane inspector for the Department of Buildings apologized this morning as he was sent to prison for two years for a bargain-basement bribe scheme that put under-qualified people behind the controls of 200-foot-high "cherry picker" cranes.

Prosecutors were only able to prove he took $10,000 over the course of seven years to pass cranes through inspection and sell operating licenses to a handful of workers at a Long Island crane company, Nu-Way Crane Service.

In at least one case, Delayo signed off on an operating license to a crane operator who had never even taken his drivers exam.
