A Kalamazoo man could serve up to 10 years in prison after he was sentenced last week for defrauding a Lockport Township homeowner in 2017.
Nakia Davis, 47, was ordered to serve between one year and a decade in a sentencing made by Circuit Court Judge Paul Stutesman.
Court officials said the victim’s home suffered storm damage and the owner was reimbursed nearly $36,000 from insurance.
The homeowner then hired Davis to do repairs after he confirmed that he was licensed. State police investigated after it was reported Davis did not finish the work, and the work that was done was poorly performed, officials said.
Davis eventually admitted he was not licensed and spent the funds provided by the homeowner.
He pleaded guilty to larceny by conversion and was sentenced in late 2020. In the meantime, he was wanted for felony drunken driving in Indiana and probation violations in St. Joseph County.
