Fake DOT Contractor Sentenced

A Holley man has been sentenced to 18 months in prison for his wire and mail fraud conviction.

Nathaniel Lorenz was found guilty of submitting fake invoices to the State Department of Transportation while he was a DOT contractor.

He was responsible for maintenance of bridges in the Buffalo and Binghamton regions, but he was hiding the fact that he never bought the materials to do the work.

Lorenz's company, ACME Power Washing, collected more than a million dollars from the state for work that he never performed.

State auditors caught him trading the invoices with a shell company that he also owned in an effort to launder the money.

His sentence also calls for $600,000 in restitution and two years' probation.
