Businessman sentenced in Rockhurst bribery
Kansas City, Mo. -- A businessman was sentenced to 20 months in prison Wednesday for bribing a Rockhurst University official for contracts.
Charles Cacioppo Jr., 52, of Kansas City, was also ordered to pay $49,500 in restitution, U.S. Atty. Todd Graves said.
Cacioppo owns Industrial Salvage and Wrecking Inc. and is a co-owner of Industrial Environmental Management Inc. He pleaded guilty in June to paying bribes to Ralph Dunn, Rockhurst's former physical plant director, in exchange for nearly $1 million in contracts for demolition and asbestos removal at the Jesuit university.
Dunn was sentenced Tuesday to one year and one day in prison.
