Lebanon Man Gets 8 Months for Clean Air Act Violations
Fifty-four-year-old Franklin "Al" Bieri of Lebanon was sentenced Friday in federal court in East St. Louis to five months in prison, followed by three months of home confinement. He also was fined $3,000. Authorities say Bieri bought a seven-acre former Emerson Electric site in Washington Park and looked to demolish the asbestos-containing buildings on the site.
Workers hired by Bieri for the job in April 2010 didn't take proper safeguards in removing the asbestos or limiting its airborne emissions. The waste wasn't properly labeled to alert others of its danger.
