Former Indian Point worker sentenced in scheme to write false reports

WHITE PLAINS – A former chemistry manager at the Indian Point nuclear power plant was sentenced in White Plains federal court on Thursday to 18 months of probation for engaging in deliberate misconduct on the job. Daniel Wilson was also fined $500.

Wilson was charged with writing a report stating that diesel fuel samples had been tested in-house in his chemistry department and were found to be in compliance with an applicable Nuclear Regulatory Commission limit in order to conceal prior test results showing that samples of the fuel exceeded the NRC limit.

That fuel is maintained for the emergency generators at the facility.
