Homeowner after homeowner told us their stories.
They say Bill Bowen with Green Life Exteriors promised them new roofs and never delivered, either not completing the work or not doing any work at all.
One told us, "I still need a roof. I got nothing."
Another said, "I think they all need to be in jail. These people...they need to be stopped."
After our Call for Action stories authorities charged Bowen.
He took off, but was eventually tracked down to York County, South Carolina.
Then after facing numerous charges of theft, Bowen made a deal with the El Paso County district attorney's office. We're told he pled guilty to four felony theft charges of stealing from at-risk adults.
His sentence is 15 years of supervised probation and paying $500,000 in restitution. I'm told compensation is what his victims want the most.
The DA's office tells me if Bowen fails to pay back his victims, he faces prison time of four to 24 years for each count.
Bowen's formal sentencing is set for April 23. We'll let you know what happens.
One silver lining is the number of roofers who stepped in and provided homeowners with new roofs at no charge.
Thanks to Abello's Roofing, Aspen Roofing, Holladay Grace Roofing, Amazing Roofs and Fixin's Roofing.
Front Range Disposal and Bob's of Colorado provided dumpsters on several jobs, and Pikes Peak Regional Building Department cut the cost for roofing permits.
