Kerik contractor gets sentenced

Posted

Peter Ditommaso, found guilty of perjury for lying to a grand jury investigating repairs to a Riverdale apartment owned by former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik, was sentenced in Bronx Criminal Court Tuesday. 

In December, a jury found that he had testified falsely when denying that his company Interstate Construction, Interstate Drywall and Interstate Materials had paid most of the work — valued at $255,000 — on Mr. Kerik’s Riverdale apartment, according to the Bronx District Attorney’s Office. 

On Tuesday, he was sentenced to five years’ probation, 1,500 hours of community service in the Bronx and fined $10,000 for lying during testimony before a grand jury, after being found guilty in December of two counts of perjury in the first degree.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Stuart Levy, Chief of the Rackets Bureau and Assistant District Attorneys Omer Wiczyk and Peter Kennedy also assigned to the Rackets Bureau.
