Contractor Kevin Clague Indicted with Theft of Consumer's Money

Concord, NH—Attorney General John Formella announces the indictments of Kevin Clague d/b/a Clague's Contracting and Design, LLC (age 39) of Alexandria, Indiana, formerly of New Durham, New Hampshire, for three counts of felony theft by deception related to Mr. Clague's conduct in Strafford, Rockingham, and Hillsborough counties.

The New Hampshire Multicounty Grand Jury indicted Mr. Clague on three Class A felony counts of Theft By Deception in the above three counties. The Theft By Deception indictments allege that, between December 14, 2019 and October 28, 2020, Mr. Clague obtained or exercised control over the property of J.M., specifically U.S. currency, by deception with a purpose to deprive J.M. thereof, in an aggregate amount in excess of $1,500, when Mr. Clague created an impression which was false and which Mr. Clague did not believe to be true when he told J.M. that he needed the deposit to pay subcontractors, to purchase materials, and to obtain a building permit.

The Multicounty Grand Jury previously indicted Mr. Clague on September 10, 2020 for a Class A felony Theft By Unauthorized Taking against L.M. They indicted Mr. Clague on January 14, 2021, for a Class A felony Theft By Unauthorized Taking against K.R. They also indicted Mr. Clague on April 15, 2021, for a Class A felony Theft By Unauthorized Taking against A.B. and J.B. These previous indictments are in Belknap County Superior Court.  

Class A felonies and are punishable by up to 7½ -15 years at the New Hampshire State Prison and/or a maximum fine of $4,000 for each charge.
An indictment is merely an accusation, and Mr. Clague is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.

Assistant Attorney General Gregory M. Albert of the Consumer Protection and Antitrust Bureau is prosecuting this case.
