El Paso, TX (KTSM) — A roofer is arrested after not paying one of his workers, in what's being called a "landmark" case.
A grand jury indicted John Najera, 51, owner of Sun-City Roofing on criminal wage theft.
Investigators say a man was promised more than $2,000 to replace a woman's roof.
When it came time to get his pay, Najera allegedly reneged.
Najera faces jail time and restitution if convicted.
He'll be arraigned May 2.
