Wilson Roofing Contractor Charged in Federal Court

Federal prosecutors, IRS agents and local law enforcement officials recently collaborated to bring criminal charges against roofing and home repair contractor James Dino Wills of Wilson, NC. Wills, who did business as Wills Roofing and Home Repair, was indicted on twelve counts of structuring financial transactions in order to evade federal reporting requirements (“structuring”). Yesterday, the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina granted pretrial release to Wills, but with several stipulations and conditions. Among those conditions were requirements that he not work in the home improvement industry unless he is doing so as a salaried or wage-earning employee of a licensed contractor.

When charges against Wills were announced last month, the Wilson Police Department, through an article published in The Wilson Times, invited Wilson home owners who thought they were victims of home repair fraud to contact Officer Kimberly Sims at telephone number 252-243-2255. It is reported that some Wilson-area home owners did come forward with such claims. Task Force members who learn of home owners in their areas with complaints about Wills or his company are invited to share their information with Officer Sims or with Linda Matthews or Jim Grier of the NC Attorney General’s Office, telephone 919-716-6000.
