Jet Officials in Teterboro Crash Plead Not Guilty

Two officials of a Florida-based charter jet company charged in connection with a crash at Teterboro Airport have pleaded not guilty.
Joseph Singh and Brien McKenzie appeared Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Newark. Singh was the director of charters and McKenzie was the director of maintenance for the now-defunct Platinum Jet Management.
Both men are charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud, and Singh is charged with making false statements. Singh's bail was set at $100,000 and McKenzie's at $350,000.
Platinum is accused of repeatedly violating federal aviation rules and lying to investigators about the 2005 Teterboro crash.
Four others, including co-founders Michael and Paul Brassington, are scheduled in court later this month.
