A Cahokia businessman was sentenced in federal court Friday to three years in prison.
Stephen Carraway, 50, of Cahokia, also faces a $2,000 fine and two years of supervised release for conspiring to defraud the City of East St. Louis' demolition program and engaging in a monetary transaction over $10,000 in property from Carraway's business, Steve's Hauling. The business provided demolition services to the city of East St. Louis.
Carraway was told how much to bid in order to be awarded the contract. Carraway thereafter submitted a falsified certificate of insurance in the bid proposal when he did not have an existing liability insurance policy in effect.
