Barnsley Bate have again assisted in the successful prosecution of a rogue builder.
At Birmingham Crown Court on Monday, May 16, the cowboy builder was jailed for six years.
Barnsley Bate have assisted with Expert witness statements and also found structures to be unsafe.
Waheed Butt stated shortly after his release from prison in 2018 he started building company WB Infrastructure.
A cowboy builder destroyed homes across a major UK city and conned more than £150k out of victims on shoddy works – by employing crooks.
There were 13 complainants, mainly customers who had been ripped off as well as a handful of businesses caught up in Butt’s web of deceit. The court heard Butt had set aside £152,000 to compensate them although the victims claimed their total losses to be in excess of £200,000.
