Worker to admit in court that faulty generators are not fixed

Posted: Updated:
CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) -

A man who installed shoddy generators has to fix his work by Tuesday.

A judge ruled last month that Stephen Mills had to fix the faulty systems by Tuesday or face a fine.

However, Mills lawyer admitted Monday the work isn't done and now he will have to explain why to the judge. 

Mills was found guilty of construction fraud and building code violations last month. He admits his company installed faulty generator systems in 33 homes across Chesterfield County.

Another company, Commonwealth Duct and Mold, stepped up to fix the work but they haven't been able to complete it by Tuesday's court date.

The judge told Mills, if the work wasn't done by Tuesday he would have to pay a $1,000 fine. Still, Mills lawyer believes the judge will be understanding.

He says, many homes have been fixed, but not all.

Mills is due in court at 10 a.m. Tuesday.
