A contractor who was convicted of taking money from customers for home improvement projects without actually doing any real work was sentenced to five years in prison Monday.
Bradley Ivers, 66, pleaded guilty to felony theft for defrauding 19 victims of more than $130,000 between June and December 2015, according to prosecutors.
Ivers, who was operating a business called Honey Won’t Do from his Adams County home, admitted to taking money from customers as deposits for projects including home additions, finished basements, bath and kitchen remodels, decks and patio covers.
The customers told authorities Ivers never got any work done – and prosecutors allege Ivers used their money for personal and business expenses unrelated to its intended purpose.
Several of the victims – some of whom were elderly – told the judge they spent their savings on work that was never done.
