GARDEN CITY – (November 9, 2017) – A former Finney County man pleaded guilty to felony theft and deceptive commercial practice, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said.
David Rosales, 41, now of Leawood, pleaded guilty on Tuesday in Finney County District Court to one felony count of theft and two counts of misdemeanor deceptive commercial practice. The case stemmed from an investigation by the Garden City Police Department and the attorney general’s office, which discovered that Rosales contracted to do plumbing and construction work under the auspices of being licensed but in fact he was not. He then accepted payment from three consumers and did little or no work. The crimes occurred between August and October 2012.
District Judge Franklin Pierce took the plea and scheduled sentencing for December 13 at 2 p.m. in Finney County District Court.
The case is being prosecuted by Deputy Attorney General Steven Karrer of the attorney general's Fraud and Abuse Litigation Division.
