Roseville man must pay $35K over unfinished seawall projects

The Macomb Daily

Mount Clemens – A judge has ordered a Roseville man to pay about $35,000 in restitution for failing to start or complete work on seawalls he was hired to repair or build along the Lake St. Clair shoreline.

David Marshall, 56, must pay $35,100 to four people by Oct. 13, 2021, under a recent order by a Macomb County Circuit Court judge. He had pleaded guilty in August to seven larceny offenses, five felonies and two misdemeanors.

If Marshall pays that restitution the felonies would be reduced to misdemeanors under the judge’s order, The Macomb Daily reported.

The judge also sentenced him to 38 days in jail, which was the amount of time Marshall had already served.

Marshall had failed to perform promised work on four projects in Harrison Township and two in St. Clair Shores.

He and a company that assisted him eventually completed the work on two of the projects in Harrison Township and St. Clair Shores, and most of the work on one project in the township after complaints were filed three years ago.

Marshall’s attorney, Glenn McCandlis, said that the reason his client got behind on the projects was that he had suffered a “massive heart attack.”
