Halliburton to pay fine for destroying evidence

A federal judge has accepted a plea agreement that calls for Halliburton to pay a $200,000 fine for destroying evidence after the BP oil spill.

Halliburton pleaded guilty Thursday to a misdemeanor charge.

The company was accused of deleting data during a post-spill review of the cement job on BP’s blown-out well.
