A Hazelhurst woman and man have been charged with theft by contractor-$2,500 to $5,000 for allegedly not completing a staining job at a property in the town of Plum Lake in 2017 in Vilas County Circuit Court.

Lynda A. Hagen, 36, and David J. Hagen Jr., 38, each face the Class I felony charge, filed Aug. 28, 2017. Lynda Hagen waived her preliminary hearing last week, while David Hagen’s preliminary hearing was scheduled for Monday of this week.

Probable cause was found Lynda Hagen had committed a crime and she was bound over for arraignment. Not guilty pleas were entered by the court and a pretrial conference was set for Feb. 26 at 11:30 a.m.

According to the complaint, the Hagens, doing business as DVL Painting and Staining, had allegedly agreed to stain five buildings and three decks for a Sayner property owner for a total of $6,500, with a 50% deposit of $3,250. According to the complaint, the property owner said the work was to include power washing, siding repair, deck repair, caulking, two coats of paint on trim, doors and soffit, and place a natural cedar stain on the buildings.

The property owner told law enforcement officers that workers came to the residence and replaced eight boards and stringers on the deck, purchased by the property owner, and completed the work in about two hours. The property owner said the workers never returned and he attempted to contact the Hagens but their cellphones were disconnected. A law enforcement officer eventually made contact with Lynda Hagen a year after the work was not completed May 30, 2017, and said she would contact the property owner about completing the work, but allegedly she never made the contact, according to the complaint.
