Steven Bartlett, the builder that screwed us and 100+ families is found guilty of Grand Theft of more than $100,000 although in reality, he took more than $1 Million - close to $1.6 Million - from all of us combined! I cannot put into words how happy I am that this man finally got what he deserves. He is now in jail awaiting his sentencing on April 16, 2008 and he may get up to 30 years in jail. Serves him right!
The trial only lasted for 3 weeks. It was really fast because the case against him is really strong. The jury deliberated for 6 hours before deciding that he is indeed GUILTY! I am hoping and praying that he gets the maximum!
