Does CT statute 20-247 apply to commercial work?

Asked 8 months ago - Stamford, CT

I worked for a doctor's office (painted the interior of the office. Person (doctor) hiring me was aware that I didn't have a contractors license or home improvement license for residential work. Now they went o the police and pressing charges against m saying that I did the work without proper license. Police wants to charge me with statute 20-247. Can they do that? I though 20-247 only applied to "home" improvements not for place of business. Please help.. Thanks.

    Answered . Sec. 20-247. deals with the Appeal rights for a BARBER aggrieved by a final decision of the Department of Public health. Section 20-427 deals with unlicensed contractors offering or performing services on RESIDENTIAL property. Each Violation: offer, performance, etc., can be deemed a separate crime punishable as a B-Misdemeanor (up to 6 mos jail time). GET A LAWYER!

    Answered . The attorneys, Mr. Lassen and Mr. McConnell are right, this is not a workers compensation question. The police want to charge you with a crime. You need a criminal defense attorney.
