Utah courts have taken the following action against unlicensed contractors:

- A South Jordan man has been sentenced in 3rd District Court to one year in the Salt Lake County Jail for contracting without a license.Frank Earl Reedy III, advertising as Roof Tech, has been on probation twice before on felony theft charges but was sentenced to jail for the class A misdemeanor of contracting without a license.

The theft charges stem from his failing to complete five separate roofing jobs for which he had received down payments, the state Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing said.

- Charges have also been filed in the 3rd Circuit Court against Gregory K. Gallagher, Salt Lake City, for contracting without a license and theft by deception.

Gallagher, doing business as Drywall Application, acted as contractor in submitting bids for two projects, the division said. "In one case, Gallagher was paid $250 up front, delivered three 2-by-4s (boards) to the residence, nailed on to the ceiling and then abandoned the work site."
