HONESDALE -- A man accused of using his home improvement business to swindle elderly clients was sentenced Thursday in Wayne County.

David Borsdam was sentenced to 20 days to five years in prison. He pleaded no contest in July to home improvement fraud.

Investigators said Borsdam charged one client over $83,000 for unnecessary repairs at a home owned by that elderly victim.

Betty Borsdam was also charged along with her husband and entered into ARD in July. She must pay restitution, do public service, and is on probation from doing any home improvement work for two years.
