Already Facing 143 Charges For Allegedly Ripping Off 20 Pennsylvania Homeowners Out Of $250K, Home Improvement Contractor Gets Nailed With 140 New Charges When Another 20 Victims Come Forward After News Of Earlier Arrest First Broke

In Erie, Pennsylvania, GoErie.com reports:
  • The case against an Erie contractor has expanded to include 283 charges and 40 victims who claim they lost a total of $446,600.

    Lloyd A. Davis, 60, first charged in November with bilking 20 customers, was charged [] after 20 new victims came forward, a prosecutor said.

    State police [] filed an additional 140 charges against Davis, owner of LD Construction LLC.

    Assistant Erie County District Attorney Jared Trent said the charges were added after the 20 new victims came forward, claiming losses totaling $193,000. Trent said the new victims came forward after Davis was first charged.

    The 140 new charges are nearly identical to the 143 previously filed. The charges against Davis are largely felonies, ranging from deceptive business practices to receiving stolen property.

    In the original charges, Davis is accused of accepting payments for contracting work he never completed or never started.

    He is currently at the Erie County Prison on $250,000 bail on the first set of charges, and is scheduled to be arraigned Friday morning by North East District Judge Scott Hammer on the 140 new charges.
