SHELTON, Wash. — A Washington man who has been accused of doing illegal contract work twice in the past 13 months has been sentenced to 15 days in jail.

The Olympian reports (http://bit.ly/2v8woZf ) 57-year-old Peter Daniel Yeaman’s jail sentencing stems from a call police got about an illegal contractor who took a job for $5,000 but never did any of the work. Yeaman was also ordered to repay $5,000 to his victim after he pleaded guilty last week to a misdemeanor charge of unregistered contracting.

Yeaman and his company have been cited by the state nine times since 2013 for unregistered contracting and twice for not obtaining a permit before altering a home. In addition, his registration was suspended in 2012 for failing to pay workers’ compensation premiums.

This story has been corrected to show that the registration was suspended for failing to pay worker’s compensation premiums, not for failing to properly pay workers.
