Merced man sentenced to 11 years in prison for fraud, theft

Merced County Superior Court Judge Jeanne Schechter sentenced Jesse Munoz to 11 years in prison last Friday on five counts of grand theft or personal property and five counts of diversion of construction funds.

Between May 2012 and Dec. 2014, Munoz posed as a contractor in Merced, scamming over 20 people. He would take deposits from unsuspecting homeowners and then would disappear and never return to complete or start work.

Munoz was also convicted of fraud and theft related charges in 2009.
