Eric "Gabe" Wisehart agreed to a plea deal that settles the case against him. As a result of his "Alford Plea" he is guilty of one count of racketeering, four counts of first degree aggravated theft and one count of offering to work as a contractor without a license. An Alford Plea is one where the defendant does not admit guilt, but recognizes that there is evidence against him that could lead to a conviction. Wisehart was charged with stealing more than 2-million dollars from his clients by way of cash, services or equipment. Wisehart was accused in 2009 with 29 counts of racketeering, theft and working as a contractor without a license. By Wiseharts’ agreeing to the six counts, prosecutors agreed to drop the remaining 23 charges. He could end up serving a maximum of 61 years in prison with over a million dollars in fines. Sentencing has not been scheduled.
