Former New Hampshire Contractor Could Face 30 Years In Prison For Unauthorized Taking
A former New Hampshire contractor has been indicted on charges of felony theft by unauthorized taking, according to the New Hampshire Attorney General's Office.
Kevin Clague, 38, of Churubusco, Indiana is accused of exercising "unauthorized control over money" belonging to another individual, per an announcement from New Hampshire Deputy Attorney General Jane E. Young.
According to the release, Clague's business, Clague's Contracting and Design, LLC, was formerly located in New Durham, New Hampshire before re-locating to Indiana.
The charge against Clague, which is a Class-A felony, comes out of Belknap County. The indictments were handed down by the New Hampshire Multicounty Grand Jury, the release said.
The indictment alleges that Clague obtained or exercised the aforementioned unauthorized control over money that belonged to the victim. The alleged activity occurred between July 2019 and March 2020, the release said, and the aggregate value of the money exceeded $1,500.
Clague previously pled not guilty to a separate felony charge of theft by unauthorized taking in Belknap County for an alleged theft against another consumer, according to the release.
The charges carry a maximum sentence of 15 years in state prison, and/or a maximum fine of $4,000, for each charge.
