Jefferson City, Mo. – Attorney General Chris Koster said today a Greene County jury has found Edna Kay Jackson, of Kirbyville, guilty of 7 counts of defrauding consumers.
Koster said Jackson owned a mobile/modular home business, Dogwood Homes. Jackson would sell the homes, collect the purchase price, and fail to deliver either the homes or the clear titles to the homes to the consumers. In addition, Jackson brokered homes for customers and failed to give either the sellers or their bank the money from the sale.
“Kay Jackson defrauded people of tens of thousands of their hard-earned dollars,” Koster said. “This office is committed to enforcing consumer-protection laws and arduously prosecuted this case. I’m pleased with the result and commend the jury on the verdict.”
Jackson will be sentenced on January 13. She faces up to 4 years in prison on each count and a fine of up to $5,000 per count.
