DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - 48-year-old Chad Alan Cappiello will be sentenced to 47 years in prison after being found guilty of theft of property against the elderly, $30,000-$150,000, theft of property and misappropriation of fiduciary funds against the elderly.

Cappiello admitted victims would sign contracts for remodeling and pay half down and then he refused to honor terms of the agreement. It took a Tarrant County jury less than an hour to convict Capiello on the charges of stealing more than $58,000 from six residents for everything from new windows to complete room remodels.

"This was a money grab," said prosecutor Nathan Martin. "He didn't earn a thing. He stole it."
