Oklahoma Home Repairman Ordered to Pay Restitution

April 5, 2012

An Oklahoma City home repairman was sentenced Thursday after pleading guilty to two counts of home repair fraud, Attorney General Scott Pruitt said.

Alan B. Holcombe, 54, was sentenced in Cleveland County District Court to a 10-year suspended sentence and must pay $64,900 in restitution. Holcombe must continue Gambler’s Anonymous and pay the Victims Compensation Assessment fund $50 per count.

The restitution is for six victims after an investigation by the Attorney General’s Public Protection Unit found Holcombe had accepted payments from homeowners for promised home repairs and never provided the service.

The Public Protection Unit protects consumers from fraudulent, unfair or deceptive business practices and can provide conciliation services to help resolve complaints against businesses.
