Man going to jail for not painting house

WESTFIELD, N.Y. (WIVB) – A man who took $1,500 from an elderly woman and never painted her house is going to prison.

In December 2011, 46-year-old Kerry Anderson was arrested for not performing the home maintenance he had agreed to do for a woman in Westfield. When the victim asked for her money back, Anderson would not cough up the dough.

He was sentenced Thursday to one-and-a-third to four years in prison for fourth degree grand larceny and first degree scheme to defraud.

Anderson was also ordered to pay restitution. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
