Plea hearing in reactor inspection records case

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) - A second contractor employee charged with falsifying electrical cable inspection records at the Tennessee Valley Authority's Watts Bar reactor project is changing his plea to guilty.

An attorney for John E. Delk said the former crew supervisor for Williams Specialty Services of Tucker, Ga., will change his plea at a Wednesday federal court hearing in Chattanooga.

Attorney Jim Logan of Cleveland said Delk expects the same sentence of probation that was handed out to another electrician, Matthew Correll.

Court records show Delk is charged with knowingly and willfully certifying work that he knew had not been completed at the nation's only current nuclear reactor construction project.

A filing said the records were falsified on the spur of the moment when Correll was told to "hurry up and get it done."
