(wfcr) - Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley says it's unlikely that anyone will be going to jail as a result of the concrete ceiling collapse inside a big dig tunnel last summer that cost a Jamaica Plain woman her life. Coakley says she hopes to complete the criminal investigation begun by her predecessor by labor day. And she lauded the recent findings of the national transportation safety board on the collapse.

Coakley spoke at the federal courthouse in Boston after US Attorney Michael Sullivan announced that a firm which supplied substandard concrete for another section of the tunnel has agreed to pay 50 million dollars to settle civil and criminal investigations. Aggregate Industries NE has also agreed to plead guilty to a criminal charge of conspiracy to defraud the federal government.
