 SENIOR PROJECT CONSTRUCTION MANAGER OF THE BOSTON HOUSING AUTHORITY PLEADS GUILTY TO PERJURY BEFORE THE GRAND JURY
 Boston, Dec. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- A current Boston Housing Authority Construction Project Manager pled guilty today to one count of making false declarations to a federal grand jury.
 U.S. Attorney Wayne A. Budd announced that Daniel O'Connor, 40, of Boston, pled guilty to one charge of having made false declarations to a federal grand jury on March 22, 1991. O'Connor is currently a senior project construction manager with the Boston Housing Authority; in 1987, O'Connor had been employed by the Boston Housing Authority as a carpenter and carpenter foreman on the Franklin Field Elderly Project.
 At the change of plea hearing, the Government stated that O'Connor was called to testify before a grand jury investigating allegations that upper level supervisors had directed low level employees to work, at the expense of
the Boston Housing Authority, on private construction jobs. When O'Connor appeared before the grand jury, he was asked whether he had known that Deputy Administrator James Kehoe had had work done on his home in Quincy in 1988, whether he (O'Connor) had been asked to find a floor layer to put in a floor at Kehoe's house, and whether he (O'Connor) had been asked by his supervisors at the Boston Housing Authority to find employees who could work on Kehoe's home. Government's counsel stated that O'Connor had discussed the work at Deputy Administrator Kehoe's house with at least three BHA eployees who went to work at the house and who received time off with pay the next week for having worked on Kehoe's home. O'Connor also directed the floor layer to work on another employee's home at BHA's expense.
 U.S. District Judge Douglas P. Woodlock scheduled sentencing for Feb. 13, 1992. O'Connor faces a maximum term of imprisonment of five years, and a maximum fine of $250,000. The case has been investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael K. Loucks.
