Guilty Plea on DOT theft and Obstruction of Justice
Raymond Cox, 52, of Plymouth pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Mark R. Kravitz in New Haven to theft and obstructing justice, according to the U.S. Attorney's office.
Cox was the assistant DOT rail administrator who oversaw the renovation of DOT's offices at Union Station in New Haven.
The details are not pretty. Cox apparently arranged for a unnamed individual to prepare fake bids so that a renovation project had been bid competitively. No mention on whether this is part of the culture of DOT or not, but considering the pace of work on our roads, one has to wonder.
