Will they stand their ground
Will they let you down again
What about your friends are they gonna be low down
Will they ever be around
Or will they turn their backs on you?
If they know what's good for them, they will!
On June 17, 2014, U.S. District Judge Thomas L. Ludington sentenced Rodolfo Rodriguez (shown above) to 21 months in a federal prison for lying to a federal grand jury regarding what he knew about asbestos removal from the Bay City charter school. With credit for time served, Rodriguez could be released on Valentine's Day...2016.
Rodriguez was an employee of Roy Bradley's restoration company, Lasting Impressions. In January 2013, Rodriguez testified before a grand jury and deliberately gave false testimony regarding how much asbestos he removed and who directed him at the task, court records show.
Excerpts of Rodriguez's testimony indicated he varied on how much asbestos he removed, from 20 feet to 200 feet. He initially maintained no one told him to remove the material and that he did so on his own volition, but after being pressed by the grand jury, he said crew foreman Gerald A. Essex told him to "gut the place".
In February 2014, Rodriguez pleaded guilty to one count of perjury before a grand jury. "At Bradley's direction, and under Essex's supervision, Rodriguez removed at least 200 feet of asbestos insulation from pipes in the church so the pipes themselves could be removed," the plea agreement states.
Rodriguez, who was reportedly paid in cash "off the books", testified against Bradley and Essex—and was later whisked off to serve his perjury sentence at a federal prison in Terre Haute, Indiana.
