A building contractor will get jail time and have to pay more than $70,000 in restitution after pleading guilty Tuesday morning to home repair fraud.

A Marshall County district judge convicted Randy Quillin on charges of home repair fraud and working without a plumber's license or certification. The judge sentenced him to a year in jail and two years of unsupervised probation. He must also pay court costs and restitution totaling more than $72,000.

Quillin pleaded guilty, but is now demanding an appeal to circuit court for a jury to decide his guilt or innocence.

Quillin was charged last year after a complaint was made to the Alabama Plumbers and Gas Fitters board. In the complaint, James Walker said he hired Quillin to remodel his entire home on Mount Carmel Drive in Guntersville back in 2011. 

Some of the work included more than $8,000 just in plumbing work that, according to the complaint, he was not licensed to do. Walker said Quillin took an unusually long time to complete the job before abandoning it totally in July 2013.

His case will now go to circuit court. No court date has been set.
