In a very rare case in which the government argued that it viewed criminal sentences as too lenient, the U.S. Department of Justice contended in an appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 1st Circuit on Nov. 7, 2011, that the sentences handed out to two government contractors convicted of fraud did not accurately reflect the seriousness of their crimes.

Robert Prosperi, the former general manager of Aggregate Industries, N.E. Inc., and Gregory Stevenson, a former district operations manager for the company, were convicted of a total of 135 felony counts, including conspiracy to commit highway-project fraud, conspiracy to defraud the government with respect to claims, and making false statements in connection with highway projects. Aggregate Industries was a major concrete supplier for the $15 billion “Big Dig” tunnel project in Boston.
