In 1999, while preparing for an LDEQ pre-accreditation audit, Enviro-Comp's owner, Shawn Decareaux-Kilgarlin, knowingly made false statements in Enviro-Comp's log books and certification analyses about water testing for the purpose of misleading the LDEQ auditor. In addition, she influenced Alexander to provide false information. Decareaux-Kilgarlin was convicted and was sentenced to serve one year in prison. The case was investigated by EPA's Criminal Investigation Division, LDEQ, the Louisiana Department of Justice and the Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office. The case was prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney's Office in Baton Rouge.
