HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. (AP) — A former funeral home owner in Hendersonville has been placed on probation after pleading guilty to 20 fraud charges.
The Times-News of Hendersonville reported (http://bit.ly/18ZiAOb) that 54-year-old Richard Jarrett Moseley pleaded guilty this week to obtaining property by false pretenses and writing bad checks.
Mosely must serve three years of probation and pay more than $18,000 in restitution.
Assistant District Attorney Doug Pearson said Mosely could have up to five years to make the payments.
He owned South park Funeral and Cremation Services.
Investigators said Mosley defrauded businesses, employees and customers by writing checks on closed accounts, soliciting services that went unpaid, misplacing bodies and substituting the ashes of loved ones.
He has lost his license as a funeral director in North Carolina.
