PHOENIX, Ariz., (May 22, 2018) – On Monday, May 21, 2018, Roman Nunez, 43 of Tucson, was found guilty of Contracting Without a License and Advertising Without a License, both class 1 misdemeanors, in the Pima County Justice Court.
The charges stemmed from an Arizona Registrar of Contractors investigation that revealed Nunez, dba Drisik Electric, contracted for $1,500 to build an addition on a Tucson home. Nunez was paid $1,000 and then abandoned the project after performing little work.
This was not the first time the ROC has encountered Nunez, however. In 2016, the agency completed another investigation involving poor work and abandonment that lead to his being found Guilty of Contracting Without a License and, as a result of that conviction, he was sentenced to 24 months of unsupervised probation and to pay $2,480 in restitution.
A restitution and sentencing hearing has been set for 2:00 PM on July 5, 2018 at the Pima County Justice Court.
The AZ ROC commonly receives complaints regarding unlicensed entities exploiting property owners ranging from poor work to complete abandonment. This serves as another reminder to property owners to ask contractors of their license status and to check the license by using our website or giving the agency a call.
