Sandy Contractor Pleads Guilty to Forgery Charges

A southern New Jersey man has admitted he provided a false insurance certificate and worked as an unregistered contractor following Superstorm Sandy, even after authorities revoked his registration.

Monmouth County prosecutors say Shane Wood of Toms River, also known as Shaine Wood, pleaded guilty on Monday. They will recommend that he receive a 364-day county jail term and a probation term when he’s sentenced on Feb. 21.

The 49-year-old Wood was arrested in July after an investigation by the Superstorm Sandy Fraud Task Force.

The probe revealed Wood sub-contracted to perform roof repair work at a Monmouth Beach site in late January. When the general contractor requested a certificate of liability insurance, Wood allegedly sent a false document.
