Wedding Photographer Convicted On Breach of Contract
Greenville SC photographer Gerald Randolph Byrd was convicted of failing to deliver images to a wedding client – even though he had been paid – and recieved a sentence of 8 years in jail, suspended to two years of house arrest, according to WYFF television, as reported here.
Byrd charged $2,450 to a wedding couple, and was paid. Because his breach of contract included fraudulent intent, his sentence was so severe, it seems.
A word to the wise – when your client signs a contract, YOU have to live up to the terms of the contract too, and that includes delivering on what you promised you would.
