It's taken some time, but one of the victims of Nic Baliva is finally getting justice. Baliva pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor of failing to work after being paid. Besides the guilty plea, Baliva paid $28,000 in restitution to the victim.

Since late 2014, Baliva has been the center of several Troubleshooter investigations.

At that time, he operated under several different names, including Blue Sky Dining and Bull City Builders.

Food truck owners from N.C. and from other states told me Baliva took their money to build food trucks, but didn't do much work. After my story, Baliva closed up shop and said he would make things right.

A few months later, I started to hear from new customers who say Baliva opened Premier Food Trucks in Chatham County and Reno, Nevada. Customers from NC and across the country told me they also paid him thousands of dollars to build their food trucks, but were just left with empty promises.

After that story, Baliva again closed up shop. Several of his customers did get their money back.

Baliva's mom actually paid those customers.
