Three Rockland Men Await Sentencing In NYPA Fraud Case

A third Rockland man has been brought up on federal charges of conspiring to defraud the New York Power Authority and faces a maximum of 20 years in prison. 54 Year-old Stephen Sheridan of Valley Cottage plead guilty Friday in U.S. District Court in White Plains and faces an additional 3 years on filing false 2010 tax returns. Sheridan is alleged to have conspired with Thomas Delaney of Over Rock Construction LLC to bilk money between 2009 and 2012 from the NYPA in over $400,000 over fake claimed employees. State Inspector General Catherine Leahy Scott initiated the claim saying this is, “part of an ongoing joint federal and state investigation of bid rigging, fraud and tax-related offenses in the award of contracts at NYPA’s facility in White Plains.” 42 Year-old Peter Shine of Orangeburg is also tied to allegations and plead guilty to filing a false 2013 tax return. All three men are awaiting sentencing.
