CAMBRIDGE - Thomas Hunter, 53, of Wilton, Iowa, pleaded guilty Thursday in Henry County Circuit Court on Thursday to Class 4 felony home repair fraud and was sentenced to 24 months conditional discharge and fined $1,000 plus court costs.|
A 180-day jail term was stayed six months, pending no further violations of the law and payment of $11,869 in restitution.
The charge was filed Jan. 16, after a woman building a house north of Geneseo did not get the windows, siding or shingles she bought in March 2012 from Mr. Hunter's construction company.
According to testimony at the January preliminary hearing, the victim told the sheriff's detective that Mr. Hunter stopped bringing materials to her home last June and stopped answering her phone calls by the end of July.
