Victor Barrios Convicted of Submitting False Information on Lead Abatement Worker Application

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 September 24, 2010, Victor Barrios (Age: 34) was found guilty of unsworn falsification and tampering with public records. The convictions, Class A misdemeanors, arose out of Mr. Barrios's submission of false social security numbers on his New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services' lead abatement worker application.

Concord District Court Judge Barry accepted the plea agreement between the State of New Hampshire and the Defendant and imposed a sentence of six months in the Merrimack County House of Corrections, all but 53 days 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's Office of the Inspector General and the Nashua Police Department.
