A man who owned a Brown County roofing business was found guilty of six counts of home improvement fraud after a jury trial this week.
A jury convicted Randy L. Madewell, 50, Danbury, Texas, of three felony counts and three misdemeanor counts of home improvement fraud. He could face a maximum of more than 10 years in prison when he is sentenced next month, deputy prosecutor Joe Villanueva said.
Madewell was arrested in January 2012 after six Greenwood residents told police he had taken their money and promised to fix their roofs but never did the work. In total, police said Madwell took more than $37,000 from the residents, according to court records.
