DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. -- Two brothers will spend time in prison after being convicted of running a roofing scam that targeted elderly homeowners.
Jeffrey and Keith Ogles were sentenced to 20 years, with 10 to serve, and must pay $100,000 in restitution. Prosecutors said the brothers victimized four people, grossly overcharging them for work that actually caused damage to their roofs.
"This pair deliberately preyed on elderly victims, who were all in their eighties, and demanded payments that reached over $130,000," DeKalb County District Attorney Robert James said. "The Ogles lined their pockets with the money many of our victims worked a lifetime to accumulate."
