Update: Contractor accused of scamming tornado victims extradited to Oklahoma

UPDATE 12/6/16: Glenn McCoy will avoid going to trial.

Monday, the contractor pleaded no contest to six counts of fraud in Cleveland County, which is still a conviction.

It just means he concedes the charges without admitting guilt.

Now, he's on the hook for restitution.

A judge will sentence him early next year and decide just how much his former customers get, including tornado victim Kristi Dunn, who said McCoy stole close to $70,000 from her.

“I've got nothing,” she said.

McCoy spent a year on the run from us and authorities, hiding out in Kentucky near family.

His sentencing is scheduled for early next year.

We’ll keep you posted.

OKLAHOMA CITY - It's a case we've been following for a while.

Glenn McCoy, a contractor, is accused of allegedly ripping off tornado victims.

We know U.S. Marshalls picked up McCoy at a hospital in Louisville, where he was visiting a sick relative.

Late last week, McCoy was extradited back to Oklahoma and booked into the Cleveland County Jail.

Monday was his video arraignment.

Our cameras weren't allowed inside the courtroom, but In Your Corner reporter Scott Hines got to sit in on the proceeding with tornado victim, Kristi Dunn.

“This has been a long time coming,” she said.

The deadly 2013 Moore tornado nearly killed her family.

She said McCoy knew that and yet he still took advantage of them.

“McCoy got me for $69,000,” she said.

That was all the insurance money they had.

Dunn has since rebuilt her home with the help of volunteers and donations.

She recently welcomed a new grandson.

Monday, she showed up in court to welcome home McCoy.

“I am just thrilled he's finally back here and justice will be done,” Kristi said.

The judge set McCoy's bond at $30,000.

He'll be back in court next month, and our team plans to be there to bring you the latest.
