Home improvement contractor pleads guilty to abandoning project

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – An Orchard Park home improvement contractor has pleaded guilty to abandoning a project after entering into a contract with a client who paid him over $2,000 as a deposit.

Brian Rogers, 39, of Orchard Park, pleaded guilty to attempted fourth degree grand larceny.

According to the Erie County District Attorney’s Office, in May 2016, Rogers entered into a contract with a victim who paid him $2,184 as a deposit. Once Rogers received the money, he abandoned the project without performing any work or purchasing any materials for the project.
