Ex-Virginia Contractor Ordered to Pay Restitution

August 16, 2012

A former contractor has been ordered to pay $18,750 in restitution for accepting payments on work he never performed at two Chesterfield County, Va., homes.

A Chesterfield circuit judge Tuesday sentenced Stephen P. Mills of Chesterfield to five years in prison but suspended all five years. The judge ordered Mills to pay at least $300 monthly to his two victims or else he’ll go to jail.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports Mills pleaded no contest to one felony count of construction fraud.

Mills and his wife face additional charges that they failed to fix improperly installed work at other customers’ homes.
