Century man who promised hundreds of area jobs now in prison
ALABAMA -- A Century man who promised to bring hundreds of jobs to Escambia County is going to prison.
James Craft pleaded guilty to fraud charges in Alabama.
He solicited money from investors to fund a business that was supposed to create about five hundred jobs through his company "Century Lumber and Land."
But those jobs never came about.
Craft was sentenced to 10-years, with the opportunity to be released after 90-days to pay 185,000 dollars in restitution.
If he cannot pay, he will go to prison to serve the rest of his sentence.
