Wilson’s CSLB license (#799081) was revoked in 2004.
On July 9, 2014, Wilson pled no contest to a felony violation of Penal Code Section 484b, diversion of construction funds.
Wilson is scheduled to be sentenced on August 22, 2014. He's expected to be sentenced to two years local prison on his felony probation violation; and five years of formal felony probation. Wilson will also be responsible for paying restitution to victimized consumers.
Earlier, Wilson pleaded no contest to fraudulent use of a contractor license number and contracting without a license in Alameda County in September 2008, and guilty to the same charges in Contra Costa County in December 2008.
Wilson used his revoked license number to mislead consumers that he is licensed. He then took excessive down payments and did little or poor work, without completing the projects.
It’s also believed Wilson was the publisher of “First Impressions Home Improvement Magazine,” a home improvement magazine distributed around the San Francisco Bay Area and a related Website.
