Casper Construction Worker Pleads Guilty to Five Counts of Larceny
A Casper man who prosecutors say bilked people out of thousands of dollars for construction jobs that were never completed pleaded guilty to five felony counts of larceny at Natrona County District Court on Friday.
Prosecutors say 37-year-old Gregory Jarrard accepted payment for multiple construction jobs – mostly fence, concrete, poll barn and garage work – across Wyoming while operating Wild Horse Construction. Prosecutors say Jarrard failed to complete and order materials for many of those jobs.
A plea deal cut with prosecutors reduced Jarrard’s 25 assorted counts down to five counts of larceny. Jarrard will also be required to pay restitution.
Jarrard’s attorney said Jarrard’s father had paid back “a substantial amount of restitution,” but $44,000 remains outstanding.
Jarrard’s $10,000 bond was continued. Sentencing will be set for a later date.
