End of the road for troubled paver?

It could be the end of the road for a paver who's ripped off consumers for years.

Tommy Clack has a long list of victims. Even though he was banned from doing work in North Carolina, he continued to work in the state and others.

However now, his scheming could finally be done.

A Maryland judge recently sentenced Clack to a maximum sentence of two years and five months behind bars for acting as a contractor without a license and selling home improvements without a license.

Homeowner Sandra Parks said she paid Clack $21,500 for a bad paving job and is happy he is finally behind bars.

"It's been a long time coming, I'm glad he is off the street," Parks said. "We see what happens in the future as far as any restitution, I have little faith in that and as the judge said he's a pathological liar."

Along with the criminal case, Maryland's attorney general just ordered Clack to pay almost a half a million dollars for unlawful practices related to his paving business. Besides Maryland, Clack is in trouble in South Carolina and in North Carolina for his paving scam.

"This is one of the most frustrating cases I've had as attorney general," North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper said.

Cooper's office has been investigating Clack for years. Since 2010, Clack has been banned from providing paving services in North Carolina. However, he ignored the order and continued to target homeowners -- mainly the elderly.

In fact, the AG's office tells us there are 11 homeowners Clack ripped off starting in March of this year through May, for a total of more than $100,000.

Cooper also said there is a joint task force of state and federal investigators looking into Clack on various federal charges.

Clack is due in a North Carolina courtroom for not only criminal charges, but a contempt hearing where he could even face more jail time.
