Local Contractor Gene Gore Back in Jail
Following charges of ripping off a Snellville homeowner, Gene Gore is back in jail for contempt of court.
Gene Gore, 57, was arrested today for "failing to turn over a list of assets and other documents in a civil case brought by Melissa and Alen Delic," according to WSBRadio.com.
The Delics won a $175,000 judgment against Gore three years ago.
“We sued him over the $30,000 job that he took on and didn’t complete,” Melissa Delic previously told Patch. “We were awarded the $175,000 because we had to have plans and work redone. He got contractors in to do the work, we gave him progress payments, but he never paid the contractors. After we fired him, the contractors came and asked us for the money because they had never got it from him.”
Gore was arrested by Snellville Police in July on accusations doing it again.
"The victim paid Mr. Gore a little over $4000 for contract work to be done on a rental property," said Snellville's Sgt. Greg Perry. "The money was taken, but the work was never completed."
More victims came forward after Gore's July arrest, according to WSB. He is behind bars until he can produce the documentation specified in a court order.
