PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — A Maine man who turned his Rent-A-Husband home-repair company into a nationally recognized business has pleaded not guilty to federal fraud and theft charges.
Kaile Warren of Windham was arraigned Thursday in U.S. District Court in Portland. He is charged with securities fraud, theft by deception and sale of unregistered securities.
Prosecutors say Warren misled investors by taking their money when he knew his company was failing. An indictment says he spent some of the money on personal expenses.
Warren’s attorney, Dan Lilley, said Warren did nothing wrong and didn’t mean to mislead anybody.
