September 14, 2022 | New York Post

Former Metro-North Railroad contract manager James Berlangero, 64, was ordered to serve one to three years in state prison for “corrupting” the MTA’s bidding process to benefit himself and WRS Environmental Services, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg said in a statement.

Berlangero “misused taxpayer dollars and railroaded a contracting process that should have been decided based on free competition,” Bragg said.
