Harco Construction was found guilty of criminally negligent homicide and three counts of reckless endangerment in a work-site death of a laborer employed by a subcontractor. The New York County District Attorney has stated that this verdict “should signal to the construction industry that managing a project from afar does not insulate a corporation or general contractor from criminal liability.”
