Florida Contractor Faces Jail Time

fraudAccording to an article published on the Asbury Park Press (APP) website, a Naples-based contractor is facing up to seven years after he was caught allegedly stealing more than $300,000 from several victims. One of these victims happened to be a member of the county prosecutor’s office.

This is not the first time the contractor has run into trouble. Besides his legal troubles here in the state of Florida, he has also been accused of theft in the state of New York and he has previously defrauded homeowners. In one instance, the contractor agreed to a settlement where he would surrender his construction license, refrain from building in the state of Florida, and not accept advanced deposits. However, several years after the settlement, he was accused of allegedly accepting a deposit for the purposes of purchasing hardware.
