United States: Ex-construction exec pleads guilty for role in $15M Bloomberg bribery scheme

A former Turner Construction Company executive pleaded guilty Tuesday to conspiring with his cohorts to steal $15 million from Bloomberg LP in a decade-long, bid-rigging and bribery scheme.

Vito Nigro, an ex-project superintendent, copped to one count of first-degree grand larceny for his role in the scam that overcharged ex-Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s financial services company for interior work on its sprawling offices at 1209 Park Ave. and 919 Third Ave.

Former Turner Vice President Ronald Olson pleaded guilty to the same charge last week. The men have been promised a minimum sentence of one to three years in prison and a maximum of three to nine.
