COLUMBUS, Neb. (AP) - A Colorado contractor has been sentenced to probation and ordered to pay restitution for agreeing to erect a steel building in Nebraska’s Platte County but skipping town with the $18,000 down payment.

Daniel Miller, of Double Diamond Construction, based in Erie, Colorado, had pleaded no contest and was convicted of theft by deception. He was sentenced last week. The Columbus Telegram reports (https://bit.ly/1MMEtos ) that Miller was given 30 months of probation and 120 days in jail, to be served in 30-day increments in 2016 and 2017 unless waived by the court.

Court records say Miller also was told to repay the $18,000 to his victim, Garry Greving, of Wild Wood Inc.

The records say Miller contracted in 2010 to erect a 60-by-120-foot building for Wild Wood. It was never built.
