Scammer gets 46 months for bilking workers at WTC site

By Selim Algar New York Post

A crooked New Jersey trucking company owner who bilked workers at the World Trade Center construction site for more than $1 million was smacked with a 46-month prison term Tuesday in Brooklyn federal court.

Gerardo Fusella copped to understating the work he did at the site to avoid contributing to the hardhats’ pension plan so he could pocket the difference.

The goon’s brother, Vincent Fusella was sentenced to two months in the clink for his role in the scheme.

Together, the brothers are on the hook for more than one million in restitution.

The slammed siblings also had the distinction of being the worst toll deadbeats in New Jersey after they ran up $425,780 in tolls and penalties, according to court papers.
