Between April 2011 and February 2012, a New Jersey contractor was hired at 36 different locations throughout New Jersey on the grounds that he would successfully remove or contain asbestos fibers at those locations.
However, the man was not capable of removing this harmful substance safely, and instead he contaminated the buildings in which he was working. One of the buildings was a daycare in Union County, where asbestos fibers were discovered in the boiler room. He also worked in several private residences where he improperly removed asbestos.
He was arrested by authorities in the state due to the fact that he was aware of his inability to safely remove the asbestos, yet he continued to do so in order to profit. Asbestos exposure can lead to the development of mesothelioma, an aggressive type of cancer.
