CINCINNATI (AP) -- A former employee of Cincinnati's water utility has admitted guilt to accusations that he altered the drinking water testing records of treatment plant.
Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine on Wednesday announced that 56-year-old Funsho Alatishe has pleaded guilty to tampering with records and attempted theft in office charges.
DeWine's office says Alatishe falsified laboratory and drinking water records on multiple occasions while he worked as a chemist for Greater Cincinnati Water Works.
DeWine says Alatishe was responsible for making sure the drinking water coming from the Richard Miller Treatment Plant had the appropriate amounts of chlorine to kill disease-causing bacteria. DeWine says there were no reports of people getting sick as a result of Altishe's actions between January and November 2011.
Alatishe's attorney didn't immediately return a call seeking comment.
