violation of Penal Law Section (460.201)a), as follows:
 
	The defendants, in New York County and elsewhere, from in or about January 1997,
through on or about the date of this indictment, having knowledge of the existence of a criminal
enterprise, to wit, the Lucchese Organized Crime Family of La Cosa Nostra Construction Group 
(hereinafter, the "Lucchese Construction Group"), and the nature of its activities and being 
 
2
employed by and associated with that Criminal Enterprise, intentionally conducted and participated in the affairs of said Enterprise by participating in a pattern of criminal activity.
The Criminal Enterprise
The Lucchese Construction Group was a group of Lucchese Organized Crime Family members and associates, construction industry contractors, and union officials, including all of the Defendants, and others known and unknown to the Grand Jury, sharing a common purpose of engaging in criminal conduct, associated in an ascertainable structure, that was distinct from a pattern of criminal activity, and with a continuity of existence, structure, and criminal purpose beyond the scope of individual criminal incidents.
The Purpose of the Criminal Enterprise
The common purpose of the Lucchese Construction Group was to make money for its members by engaging in, among other things, criminal schemes related to the construction industry, including price fixing, bid rigging and other anticompetitive arrangements. Among the bids that members of the Enterprise rigged included those on construction sub-contracts involving New York City School Construction Authority projects at Intermediate School "IS") 93 in Queens County, Public School "PS") 33 in Queens County, and IS 254 in Bronx County; subcontracts for rehabilitation projects with the New York City Department of Transportation for the 59th Street Bridge and the Triborough Bridge and Tunnel Authority for the Triboro Bridge; the renovation of the Park Central Hotel in New York County; and the construction of the Doral Arrowwood conference center in Westchester County.
In addition to being awarded rigged bids, construction industry contractor members of the Enterprise "contractor enterprise members"), through the influence and control of union official members of the enterprise, were able to realize lower labor costs. The corrupt arrangements involved various construction trade unions, including Builders and Allied Craftsmen Local Union No. 1 New York "BAC Local 1 ")-the bricklayers union for the New
3
York City area, and Local 608 of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America the carpenters' union for much of New York .County. The reduced labor costs realized by contractor enterprise members greatly enhanced their competitiveness in the construction industry in the City and State of New York-amounting to the fixing of prices and placed legitimate construction industry contractors who were not a part of the Lucchese Construction Group at a disadvantage. The projects on which contractor enterprise members enjoyed such a competitive advantage included IS 93, PS 33, the Park Central Hotel and luxury apartments at 354 Broadway in New York County.
In return for rigging bids, fixing prices, and engaging in other anticompetitive arrangements, the Lucchese Organized Crime Family members of the Enterprise received a minimum of five percent of each contract price, as a "mob tax," paid by the contractor enterprise members. Additionally, contractor enterprise members were required to employ made members of the Lucchese Organized Crime Family as "no show" or "no work" employees, primarily as a means of maintaining an ostensibly legitimate source of income, but also to provide medical coverage and pensions for these individuals. A "no show" job meant literally that the person was paid for not being present at a job site, and a "no work" job meant that the person would be at a construction site not working, but engaging in other Lucchese Organized Crime Family schemes.
Further, some contractor enterprise members, particularly defendant Steven Chait Osserman of Kent Building Systems Inc., a modular construction company, acted as a front for Steven L. Crea who: would otherwise not be permitted to conduct business with the School ,Construction Authority. Moreover, -Crea required certain contractors to purchase modular construction units from Kent in order to conduct business in New York State.

Structure of the Criminal Enterprise
At all times relevant to this indictment, Lucchese Organized Crime Family members and associates of the Lucchese Construction Group influenced and controlled contractor enterprise members of the Lucchese Construction Group and union official members of the Lucchese Construction Group.
