Rockland County District Attorney Thomas P. Zugibe today announced the filing of criminal charges against Christopher Greco (DOB 07/07/65) of 260 East Crescent Avenue, Mahwah, New Jersey for allegedly defrauding nine employees out of more than $82,000 by failing to pay the mandatory prevailing wages on several public works projects for the County of Rockland.

Greco is charged with:

* Six count of Grand Larceny in the Third Degree, class “D” Felonies
* One count of Grand Larceny in the Fourth Degree, a class “E” Felony
* 48 counts of Offering a False Instrument for Filing in the First Degree, class “E” Felonies
* One count of Petit Larceny, a class “A” Misdemeanor

District Attorney Zugibe said, “Firms doing business with the County of Rockland are obligated to pay their workers legally prevailing wages, which include salary and supplemental benefits. Cases like this demonstrate that we are vigilant in uncovering such criminal conduct and that unscrupulous contractors will get caught and have to pay the consequences for cheating workers out of their rightful wages.”
