Convicted Rapist Cited in CSLB Undercover Sting

When investigators with the Contractors State License Board set up shop at a Sacramento home to snag unlicensed contractors, they cited 10 individuals, including an Elk Grove man  who has a previous felony rape conviction in another state, according to CSLB.

"This is a great example of why you want to hire only licensed contractors," said Alan Barcelona, president of the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) which represents members on CSLB's enforcement team.  "Someone with that type of criminal history would not be licensed, that type of criminal past would make the individual ineligible for a CSLB  license."

The sting was conducted on December 17, 2013.  State investigators contacted suspects via internet postings for bids on landscaping and home improvement projects.  Two of the suspects were contacted because they had not paid penalties for previous CSLB issued citations.

While all 10 suspects were cited, one was taken to jail on an outstanding no-bail warrant for failure to complete requirements of a previous DUI conviction.

CSLB investigators go undercover on a routine basis to protect consumers and level the playing field for those contractors following state law.
