Kevin Moloney formerly of Home Solutions, received several felony charges. Moloney plead guilty to stealing over $25,000 and four counts of passing bad checks.

Moloney’s failure to return rental property charge is still pending. Sentencing is set for July 7 and restitution will be announced at sentencing. The most serious charge, stealing, carries a maximum 15 year prison sentence.
