Boardman man sentenced to probation after repaying customers

YOUNGSTOWN — Boardman contractor John P. Bartos today told Mahoning County Common Pleas Court Judge Maureen Sweeney he made personal and business mistakes that led to the criminal charges against him and that he is a “humbled man.”

He said he repaid all of the money owed to his 25 customers, which prosecutors confirmed.

He pleaded guilty today to 18 low-level felony counts of theft, grand theft and theft from persons in a protected class and was sentenced to four years of probation, 100 hours of community service and no prison time.

He has already served 110 days in various county jails in the counties where he was charged, said his attorney, Frank Cassese.
