Placeholder Image
A contractor who failed to make good on his promises has been placed on probation for a year and warned to make restitution to his victims or face serving his time behind bars.The contractor, Samuel Arthur Dee Hall, 27, entered a no-contest plea before Circuit Court Judge Bart Stanley to two counts of misdemeanor theft. The counts were amended down from felony theft as part of the plea bargain in which Hall will remain on probation for one year and be required to pay $2,623 in restitution to his two victims.His sentence comes after he left two Dibrell-area residents holding the bag on construction projects. Doing business as Hall Construction, the defendant took a combined $13,000 from the victims to do work on detached buildings on their property, but left with their money after performing only minor work.One victim said Hall showed up on his property with employees they were certain were not even construction workers.
