“Sentencing today for a Staunton contractor convicted in March on three counts of commercial fraud has been delayed until next month, court records show.
Jeffrey T. Jennings, 33, was convicted in Augusta County Circuit Court for filing false paperwork with the Virginia Department of Transportation in an effort to hide uninsured vehicles.
Jennings, owner of Legacy Builders, which was contracted by the state for snow-removal services, filed false paperwork at the Staunton Virginia Department of Transportation office between 2007 and 2009 by claiming he had obtained insurance for his fleet of vehicles, according to the Augusta County Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office.
Jennings then collected thousands of dollars in fees after providing the fraudulent paperwork, which resulted in the charges of obtaining money by false pretenses. Following a probe by Virginia State Police, the Augusta County grand jury indicted Jennings in October.”
