• Pacific Grove Man Sentenced as Unlicensed Contractor

    Danny Jess Langley, 54, of Pacific Grove, was convicted of 11 felonies and 10 misdemeanors and sentenced to an Executed Suspended Sentence of eight years, suspending it for five years and placed on probation. The defendant was given local time of 365 days with credit for time served of 229 days. The defendant was given terms and conditions of probation as well as fines that he must pay while on probation. One of the terms included that he not contract without a valid Contracting State Licensing Board (CSLB) license. The defendant is not eligible to get a CSLB license due to his prior violent felony. Should the defendant violate his terms or conditions of probation then the executed sentence of eight years will be imposed.

    The charges included eleven felonies of Premium Insurance Fraud, Insurance Fraud, five counts of Using a False Contractors License, Filing a False Document, Grand Theft, Forgery and Failing to Register as an Employing Unit and 10 misdemeanors that included two counts of Failure to Secure Workers’ Compensation Insurance, five counts of Contracting without a License, two counts of Advertising as a Contractor and one count of Failure to Observe a Stop Order.

    Homeowners can check to see if a contractor is licensed by going to the CSLB website at https://www2.cslb.ca.gov/OnlineServices/CheckLicenseII/CheckLicense.aspx. Employers are required to secure workers’ compensation insurance for their employees so that there is an assurance of adequate medical coverage and other benefits for employees for any work-related injuries that may occur. The Workers’ Compensation Unit of the District Attorney’s Office investigates and prosecutes cases involving applicant fraud, employer fraud, premium fraud, provider fraud and employers who do not carry workers’ compensation insurance.
