LAUDERDALE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

A no-show in court has led to additional problems for a Shoals man who pleaded guilty to home repair fraud.

Phillip Strickland failed to show up to court Monday afternoon, which means a Lauderdale County judge will now issue a bench warrant for his arrest.

This is not the first time Strickland has failed to show up for a hearing. Courthouse officials said Strickland is known for skipping hearings and later being arrested for his lack of attendance.

Strickland is accused of ripping off several people thorough a company called Bama Roofing. Victims said he would start a project and never finish it, causing additional damage to the homes.

Courthouse officials said Strickland did appear in court in February for his last review.
