HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - Home improvement contractor Mark Johnson is free Thursday night after five months in the Henrico County jail. Johnson pled guilty to one felony bad check charge. A second bad check charge was dismissed, earlier this year.
Johnson walked out of criminal court a free man with a lot of debt over his head, and if he doesn't repay it, in the time frame the judge says he should, he could go to prison for several years.
The Virginia Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation is reminding people to check with them to find out if the contractor is licensed and never let your payments get ahead of the work.
