Contractor being held

November 05, 1997

A Hagerstown contractor was jailed for 60 days Tuesday for violation of probation after complaints surfaced that he was continuing to do work even though his license has been suspended since 1996.

Daniel Lee Little, 40, of 905 Security Road in Hagerstown, appeared before Washington County District Judge Ralph France Tuesday for the first of four November court dates on charges of working without a license, violation of probation and writing bad checks, court records said.

Little owes the state $5,275 because of poor work he did for a blind woman four years ago, court records said.

In late October, Little said he is paying restitution. He also said he now is doing commercial work for which he has a city license.

That license was to be canceled today at the request of Little's bonding company, South Dakota-based Western Surety Co., which said Little failed to pay his bond premium, according to Hagerstown Building Inspector Mike Heyser.

Little's state contractor's license for home improvement work was suspended in November 1996 after the Maryland Home Improvement Commission had to compensate one of his clients $250 for poor workmanship.

A month later the commission compensated a legally blind Boonsboro woman $3,725 for the same reason, according to Georgia Duffee, executive director of the Maryland Home Improvement Commission.

Little was given credit for one day spent in jail, court records said.
