The former chief operating officer and co-owner of now-defunct Schuylkill Products Inc. will spend 10 fewer months in prison, but pay the same fine, after being resentenced Wednesday in federal court in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania for his role in the largest fraud of its kind in U.S. history.
Ernest G. Fink Jr., 70, of Orwigsburg, Pennsylvania, must serve 41 months in federal prison and pay $25,100 in fines, Senior U.S. District Judge Sylvia H. Rambo ruled.
Rambo originally sentenced Fink on July 14, 2014, to 51 months in prison and $25,100 in fines after he pleaded guilty to participating in Schuylkill Products’ scheme to defraud the federal Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) program.
Federal prosecutors charged Fink and several other Schuylkill Products executives with using Marikina Engineers and Construction Corp., West Haven, Connecticut, as a front under the DBE program from 1993 until 2008 to funnel work to the Cressona company and its wholly owned subsidiary, CDS Engineers Inc.
