Prosecutor said in June 2010, Krafton -- through his company Oklahoma Roofing and Flooring -- took nearly $3,500 from a homeowner in Moore for a roofing project. He's accused of taking the money without properly finishing the job. He's accused of doing the same to three more victims, and embezzling about $12,000 in all.
