JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Nearly three years after the I-TEAM began investigating Jacksonville contractor Wyatt Green who was charged with felony fraud, forgery, and grand theft, his case has now ended with a plea deal that will keep him out of jail and without a felony conviction on his record.
As part of his plea deal, Green pleaded guilty Wednesday morning via Zoom to one count of false representation of a licensed contractor, a misdemeanor. As part of the deal, Green will pay a total of $50,000 in restitution to be split among customers that prosecutors identified in this case.
