“A restitution hearing for a 2010 fraud case was held Thursday afternoon in Judge Daniel Merritt Jr.’s court.
In April, Robert Contorno, 50, pleaded no contest to charges of organized fraud of less than $20,000 and was sentenced to five years probation. As part of the plea deal, Contorno agreed to pay restitution to multiple victims.
Back in 2009, Contorno’s Click Construction company was hired by four Spring Hill residents to fix sinkholes on their property. A sheriff’s office investigation found the Palm Harbor man relied on a non-certified engineer to prepare sinkhole reports and filed false documents to collect money from insurance and mortgage companies. Contorno hired a certified engineer to sign off on the reports after the fact.”
