NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A former Halliburton manager faces a possible prison term when a federal judge sentences him for destroying evidence in the aftermath of BP's massive 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

Anthony Badalamenti is scheduled to be sentenced Tuesday by U.S. District Judge Jay Zainey in New Orleans. Badalamenti pleaded guilty in October to one misdemeanor count of destruction of evidence and faces a maximum sentence of 1 year in prison and a $100,000 fine.

Badalamenti was the cementing technology director for Halliburton Energy Services Inc., BP's cement contractor on the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig. Prosecutors say the resident of Katy, Texas, instructed two Halliburton employees to delete data during a post-spill review of the cement job on BP's blown-out Macondo well.
