YOUNGSTOWN — Ben W. Lupo, owner of D&L Energy and Hardrock Excavating, pleaded not guilty in U.S. District Court today during his arraignment on an indictment charging him with violating the federal Clean Water Act.

Michael P. Guesman, a Lupo employee, and Hardrock Excavating also pleaded not guilty to the same charge.

The indictments came after state regulators learned Lupo had instructed Guesman to dump a mixture of oil, brine water and drilling mud into a storm drain at Hardrock’s headquarters at 2761 Salt Springs Road on Jan. 31.

Guesman was declared indigent by the court and granted public counsel. He was released on $20,000 unsecured bond.

When a defendant hires J. Gerald Ingram as his legal counsel, he is guilty. At this point, the atty. will try to minimize the damage to limit the sentence of the criminal. Unfortunately for Mr. Guesman, he is indigent. The court-appointed lawyer will not represent him as Ingram wouild and he will get a stiffer sentence than Lupo. The best legal system money can buy.
