OK contractor violates probation, back behind bars

OKLAHOMA CITY - Harold Whitt is notorious for pulling the wool over his customer's eyes, and now he's back behind bars for violating his probation.

In Your Corner first warned you about him way back in 2009.

Two years later, he was still on the run, but was later convicted on six counts of home repair fraud.

Our state's top prosecutor, Mike Hunter, told the In Your Corner team that Whitt hasn't kept up with restitution payments to his victims.

He also skipped court.

Last year, he was also convicted of scamming someone else; this time in Pottawatomie County.

“The tough call is do you work with him? Hopefully, he'll be able to find honest work and continue to pay these people back or do you take him off the streets so he won't defraud anyone else?” Hunter told News 4.

Whitt remains locked up in the Oklahoma County Jail.

He could be looking at a long prison sentence or the state could give him one last chance to stay a free man, and keep working to make his victims whole.

We’ll keep you posted.
