Former Halliburton manager sentenced for BP oil spill
Posted on Sunday, February 2nd, 2014 at 10:17 am
Anthony Badalamenti, former Halliburton manager, was sentenced to probation and community service on Tuesday, January 21.
His senencing was related to an incident in 2010, when Badalamenti destroyed incriminating evidence against Halliburton after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. In this case, destruction of evidence is considered a misdemeanor offense.
The maximum sentencing that Badalamenti faced was one year in prison. However, U.S. District Judge Jay Zainey only ordered him be one probation, to perform 100 hours of community service, and to pay a $1,000 fine.
