Man gets jail time for scamming homeowners

Wednesday, February 27, 2013 - 6:17pm

One El Paso man will spend nearly a year in jail after he admitted to scamming homeowners in a remodeling business.

Jesus Cruz, 35, pleaded guilty after he told El Paso County attorneys he took $4,000 from a homeowner as a deposit for a remodeling job.

Attorneys say the work was never completed.

Cruz had already been on probation in another case, where he was ordered to pay that homeowner back $800, but failed to do so.

He will spend 300 days in jail on the charge.
