 (KMOV) – After daring the Missouri Attorney General, convicted con man is facing more legal troubles following a News 4 investigation.

Malcolm Aldrich has been repeatedly accused of real estate rip offs for nearly a decade. As a result of some of the allegations, Aldrich signed an agreement which banned him for life from ever renting real estate again in Missouri.

The ex-convict admitted to News 4’s Craig Cheatham that he violated that agreement.

During the interview with News 4, he dared Attorney General Chris Koster to come after him for the violations.

Following that dare, Koster filed a motion against Aldrich that claimed the accused con man has refused to comply with his lifetime ban from renting property in Missouri.

He added that Aldrich’s refusal to honor that previous court order has caused consumers to suffer immediate and irreparable harm.

A News 4 investigation found repeated examples of people who claimed that Aldrich ripped them off in real estate deals in St. Louis County.

The allegations include trying to sell the home of an elderly woman in Flordell Hills which Aldrich claimed he owned even though he hadn’t paid her for her house. The home is still in her name, 

Aldrich insists he has done nothing wrong.

Flordell Hills Marshal Dennis Ogleby said he is working with the Attorney General’s Office to build cases against Aldrich.

A hearing is scheduled for August 6 in the case filed by the Attorney General's Office.
