Plea and Sentencing of Paul Davis (Age 57) of Winchester, NH For Violations Of New Hampshire's Asbestos Control And Management Laws

Attorney General Kelly A. Ayotte and Special Agent-in-Charge Michael Hubbard of the United States Environmental Protection Agency's Criminal Investigation Division announce that, on May 13, 2009, Paul Davis (Age 57) of Winchester, NH pled guilty to three indictments alleging felony-level violations of New Hampshire's Asbestos Control and Management laws. The indictments related to Mr. Davis's unlicensed and improper performance of an asbestos abatement project at 127 School Street in Keene, NH.

The Cheshire County Superior Court sentenced Mr. Davis to twelve months in the Cheshire County House of Corrections, all but six days suspended, conditioned on future compliance with all asbestos statutes and regulations, payment of a $3,000 fine, and good behavior.

Yesterday's disposition was 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 Keene Police Department and the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services.
