Sentencing Pushed Back For Belbas

Posted on Friday, January 19, 2018 09:50 AM

A Thunder Bay contractor is going to wait to hear his fate after being found guilty on fraud charges. 

Richard Belbas was to be sentenced today but his lawyer Chris Watkins asked for adjournment until January 29th to explore medical issues involving his client. 

Belbas owes thousands upon thousands of dollars from jobs he took back in 2013-2014. 

In an interview with Watkins earlier in the case, he said Belbas was trying to pay back part of the money he owes the victims before sentencing. 

Belbas was already convicted in 2015 on several fraud related charges.
