The state Office of Consumer Affairs and Business Regulation [OCABR] disciplined embattled Mutual Builders Inc. principal Jay Pelletz on May 6 with a six-month suspension of his contracting license and a $4,250 fine. The penalties followed a complaint hearing on April 4, involving Jeanty Pierre Paul of Dudley and his attempt to recoup nearly $80,000 he paid for work that was never finished.
As Worcester Sun has previously reported, Pelletz has been repeatedly accused of missing appointments, not addressing repairs, and taking deposits from customers and never starting work.
Pierre Paul alleged Pelletz committed three violations of Massachusetts General Law 142A, which regulates home improvement contractors, including abandoning the project; making a misrepresentation to procure a contract with Pierre Paul; and failing to comply with a state order.
