Michael Sackaris, the head of Nu-Way Crane company charged with bribing New York City’s top crane inspector over the course of 14 years, will plead guilty today, according to his attorney. Sackaris allegedly paid inspector James Delayo more than $10,000 in exchange for falsified inspection filings and licenses for inadequately trained crane operators, according to the New York Daily News. Delayo pleaded guilty in March on bribery charges. Sackaris could spend between two and six years behind bars for second-degree bribery. Both men were arrested in 2008, following an investigation of the deadly Azure condominium crane collapse at 333 East 91st Street and the one at 303 East 51st Street. [NYDN]
