Judge David Katz of U.S. District Court has upheld the guilty verdicts against Andrew Siemaszko, paving the way for the last of three men to be tried for the Davis-Besse cover-up to be sentenced Feb. 6. The judge acknowledged that Siemaszko’s conviction was “a close case,” but said he found “sufficient circumstantial evidence upon which a reasonable jury could have based a finding of knowledge and intent.”

Siemaszko, who lives in Spring, Texas, was convicted in August on three of five felony charges of deliberately misleading the Nuclear Regulatory Commission about the nuclear plant. He faces up to five years in prison and $250,000 in fines.
