John Mills and Terrance Allen admitted in court Tuesday that they intentionally failed to report the release of the asbestos, which was removed from the basement of buildings owned and operated by Mills.
The two men were charged with making false statements to law-enforcement officers. Mills also was charged with retaliating against a witness.
According to the indictment, the defendants illegally removed and disposed of more than 260 linear feet of pipe wrap containing asbestos.
Sentencing is scheduled for May 12 in Albany. The maximum penalty is five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Decker Fund, Rotary support Olympics coverage
SARANAC LAKE — A grant from the Charles B. Decker Memorial Scholarship Fund at Adirondack Foundation and special assistance from the Saranac Lake Rotary Foundation is helping fund Adirondack Daily Enterprise Senior Staff Writer Chris Knight cover the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia.
“For us, sending Chris Knight to Sochi with Charles B. Decker Memorial Scholarship Fund support is like sending part of Charley back to the Olympics,” said John Decker, Charles’s brother and an administrator of the Decker Fund, in a press release.
“The high point of his career occurred during the 1980 Winter Olympic Games in Lake Placid and the Miracle on Ice: Everyone was focused on Mike Eruzione and the jubilant U.S. Hockey Team, while Charley snapped a picture of a Soviet skater’s reaction to what would be the beginning of the end of the Cold War.
“Today, that hockey player is 34 years older and looking forward to watching the Games on home ice. We look forward to seeing Chris’ perspective.”
Knight and Enterprise Senior Sports Writer Lou Reuter depart for Sochi on Feb. 3. Reuter’s trip is funded by the New York Press Association, with stories to be shared with other newspapers.
