SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - The owner of the former Sioux City YMCA building has been sentenced to a year in prison and two years of supervised release for improperly removing asbestos from the building.

The Sioux City Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1OmwvjZ ) that 55-year-old Larry Wolf, of Dakota City, was sentenced in Sioux City’s federal court on Thursday. He had pleaded guilty in December to one count of violating the work practice standards of the Clean Air Act.

Wolf admitted during his plea hearing to knowing about the asbestos ahead of removing material from the building.

Prosecutors say Wolf also removed asbestos-containing material wrappings from metals inside the building then sold the metals.
