Geoffrey S. Berman, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, announced today that RICHARD BREGA, the former owner of Brega D.O.T. Maintenance Corp. in Rockland County, was found guilty by a federal jury in White Plains of fraud, bribery, and theft of government property. The convictions were for BREGA’s billing the Rockland Board of Cooperative Educational Services (“Rockland BOCES”) for maintenance of school buses that was never performed, and bribery of a Rockland BOCES official. The convictions resulted from a three-week trial before the United States District Judge Kenneth M. Karas. BREGA is scheduled to be sentenced by Judge Karas on October 17, 2018.
