Both Counts of the indictment charged the defendant with Grand Larceny in the Second Degree, a Class C Felony.  The defendant is alleged to have stolen over $360,000.00. 

Allegedly, the defendant entered into a contract to improve real property in the Town of Roxbury.  Between May 2021 and June 2022, the owner of that real property paid the defendant over $360,000.00 to install a septic system, underground electric utilities, foundations, and small homes. The defendant billed the defendant for having completed that work, and the property owner paid the invoices in full.  However, after the property owner came and inspected the property, it was discovered that none of the work had been done. Thereafter, the defendant stopped communicating with the property owner and he was unable to be located.  

Due to New York State’s bail reform laws, the defendant’s charges do not qualify for bail and the defendant was released to the supervision of the Delaware County Probation Department. The defendant pleaded not guilty to both charges at his arraignment.  The case is scheduled for a conference in Delaware County Court on August 21, 2023.   

Acting District Attorney Shawn Smith commended Investigator David Barnes of the Delaware County Sheriff’s Department for his work on this case.   

As are all persons accused of a crime, the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
