Cowboy Builders given prison sentencesBeat The Cowboy Builder
Two cowboy builders who tried to con an elderly Exeter resident into having an expensive driveway laid have been given jail sentences.
James Doran from Gloucester and Patrick Connors of Hertfordshire had already made another man in Plympton agree to pay six and a half thousand pounds for driveway work.
The cowboy builders were thwarted when the man’s bank manager became suspicious – and the work they’d done was found to be shoddy.
In the Exeter case, other family members intervened.
The pair admitted fraud and consumer protection offences – and Doran has been jailed for 30 months, while Connors was given an 18 month suspended sentence.
An all too familiar story that we hear every day.
