SPRINGFIELD, Mo. - Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt announced today that a Polk County jury found Timothy Mundy guilty of 1 count of Financial Exploitation of the Elderly and 2 counts of Unlawful Merchandising Practices for events that occurred in January and February 2016.

At trial, the State presented evidence that Timothy Mundy entered into a contract with an elderly homeowner in Brighton, Missouri to install a new metal roof. Timothy Mundy took $6,250 from the elderly homeowner and never returned to the home to install the roof.

“Preying on Missourians, especially our most vulnerable and elderly, is unacceptable. My office works diligently to hold contractors like Timothy Mundy accountable for their actions in defrauding our citizens, and we’ll continue to take action against bad actors,” said Attorney General Schmitt.

The case was tried by Assistant Attorneys General Amy Davis and Lynn Stoppy. The case was investigated by Investigator Chris Caudle.

Sentencing is set for January 17, 2020 before the Honorable Michael Hendrikson.
