Allegations: Mann defrauded more than 40 million victims out of almost $1 million

An Albertville man who had a history of taking payments for renovations he never did has been charged again.

Richard Patrick Wooton, 53, is accused of defrauding more than 40 victims out of over $980,000. He faces charges of theft by fraud. If convicted, Wooton faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison and/or a $100,000 fine.

He was arrested Tuesday but released from custody Wednesday after posting his $500,000 bail.

According to the criminal complaint, 35 homeowners were among the victims after hiring Crossroads Remodeling, LLC for home remodeling projects.
