A news release from the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee says 55-year-old Walter Cardin, of Metairie, La., was sentenced on Thursday.
Cardin was the safety manager for the Shaw Group, a construction contractor. He was convicted in November of not reporting injuries at the Sequoyah and Watts Bar plants in Tennessee and Brown’s Ferry in Alabama.
At trial, jurors heard evidence of more than 80 injuries not properly recorded.
The Shaw Group paid back double the amount of the bonuses in a 2008 civil agreement.
