A Google Maps tour of the EPA’s greatest hits of 2009.
The Environmental Protection Agency has made a nifty interactive map (what the cool kids call a mash-up) of all its 2009 enforcement actions.
The map turns up the expected, such as previously reported information on BP’s Texas City refinery pollution issues, as well as items such as this:
Sidney Baldon of Houston, Texas, was sentenced to five years imprisonment, three years probation, and ordered to pay jointly with the other two defendants $3,237,395.69 in restitution after pleading guilty to conspiracy to impede the IRS in the proper collection of federal fuel excise taxes. Tracey Diamond of Houston was sentenced to 12 months and one day incarceration, three years probation and likewise to pay jointly with the other two defendants $3,237,395.69 in restitution after pleading guilty to the same charge.
We covered the indictment of the men in 2007 but the sentences are new to us.
