Company based in Mahoning County charged with misprision of a felony

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Northern District of Ohio

Extrudex Aluminum, Inc., an aluminum manufacturing company in Mahoning County, with a parent company in Canada, was charged by information for misprision of felony in connection with a conspiracy to obstruct justice related to an investigation by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. 

As charged in the information, from April 1, 2016, through January 1, 2018, Extrudex, through its employees, concealed felony obstruction of justice offenses from Extrudex management in Canada and further failed to inform law enforcement of the commission of those offenses.

This case was investigated by the U.S. Department of Labor, Office of Inspector General. It is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Carmen Henderson and Om Kakani.

If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the Court after review of factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, the defendant’s culpability in the offense and the characteristics of the violation.  In all cases, the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases it will be less than the maximum.

An information is only an accusation and is not evidence of guilt.  A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
