Contractor Pleads Guilty, to Make Restitution (Aug 08, 2011)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An Oklahoma construction contractor has pleaded guilty to fraud and agreed to reimburse his victims in Oklahoma County.

Attorney General Scott Pruitt says Harold Whitt pleaded guilty Monday in Oklahoma County District Court to six counts of violating the Oklahoma Consumer Protection Act. Pruitt says Whitt, who operated as All Pro Construction, was accused of accepting payment for roof repairs that were never performed.

Whitt received a 10-year suspended sentence and will serve six months in the Oklahoma County jail on the condition that he reimburses $26,413 to his victims.

Charges were filed in Oklahoma and Cleveland counties in June. The Cleveland County charges are pending.

Whitt's attorney, Troy Cowin, couldn't be reached for comment. The Oklahoma Bar Association says Cowin doesn't have a listed telephone number.
