BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A 38-year-old Marrero man has pleaded guilty to lying on a form filed with the state Department of Environmental Quality.
Department spokeswoman, Jean Kelly, says Marc Victoriano was sentenced Monday to a year on probation and was ordered to pay DEQ $3,040 for the cost of its investigation, to perform 30 hours of community service, and to pay a $100 fine.
She says Victoriano operates an asbestos abatement training company called Professional Safety Consultants.
DEQ rules require at least two accredited instructors per course. Kelly says that in 2009, Victoriano sent in forms listing a teacher who was out of state when classes were taught.
She says Victoriano pleaded guilty in state court in Baton Rouge to making a false representation.
Victoriano could not immediately be reached for comment.
