Contractor Gets 20 Years for Stealing $150k from Clients
Published on October 14, 2019
GREELEY, Colo. (Weld County D.A.) – A former contractor will spend the next two decades behind bars for stealing about $150k from more than a dozen victims in Northern Colorado.
A jury convicted Jamie Bock, 46, in August of nine counts of theft for scamming 15 victims between November 2014 and August 2017. Twelve of those victims were married couples.
Bock, who was a contractor during that time, would collect money as a down payment for material costs from clients, but never finish the jobs he started.
“This defendant caused substantial financial hardship for innocent people and families across northern Colorado,” Weld Deputy District Attorney Andrew Brown said. “We’re certain that this prison sentence the judge handed down will protect the community from further exploitation.”
A Weld district court judge sentenced Bock Thursday to serve a 20 year sentence in the Colorado Department of Corrections.
Deputy District Attorneys Andrew Brown and Matthew Peterson prosecuted this case.
