Rogue roofer jailed for ripping off woman in her 90's

SHARE:

A rogue roofer has been handed a 12 month prison sentence and a 5 year criminal behaviour order, after making fraudulent representations and engaging in ‘aggressive’ practices to an elderly South Cumbrian householder.

When he appeared at Carlisle Crown Court for sentencing on Thursday 6 February, Zachary O’Connor, 33 of Barley Cop Lane, Lancaster admitted two charges of fraud and one charge of engaging as a trader in a commercial practice which was aggressive.

Court papers reveal he attended the victim’s home, and without telling her, had then returned and started roofing work which she had not agreed to. Later the same day, he told her that the extra roofing work would cost £4,000.

Cllr Celia Tibble, Cumbria County Council’s Cabinet Member for Trading Standards, said:

“This case should act as a warning to others. I am delighted to see that justice has been served for the aggressive and deceitful practices that this criminal pursued. The actions of rogue traders can have a significant financial and emotional impact on consumers, particularly the most vulnerable members of our communities. This result is testament to the hard work of the Council’s Trading Standards officers.

"Due to the nature of these crimes, Cumbria Trading Standards treat this work as a priority and work with partner agencies such as Cumbria Police to help raise awareness and tackle potential offenders."
