Penn Yan Pleads Guilty To Falsified Inspection Reports

A Penn Yan man has pleaded guilty to federal charges he falsified inspection reports at a Rochester machining business making parts for spacecraft.

James Smalley worked at PMI Industries, starting in 2017.

Federal prosecutors say an internal audit on behalf of Space X revealed multiple falsified inspection reports for parts for the Falcon and Falcon Heavy rockets.

In all, at least 38 reports were faked.

Smalley is scheduled to be sentenced May 13.
