Former Henry County commissioner Rich Myers was sentenced on Thursday in Henry County Court to one year of community control and 100 hours of community service for his role in having an unlawful interest in a public contract.
Myers was found guilty of the felony which stemmed from meetings in 2009 between Myers and designer Peter Collorafi, CEO of Revenge Designs. Investigators say Myers delivered two checks totaling $300,000 for an economic development loan to Collorafi to build a factory in Henry County. The $300,000 was never repaid by Collorafi and the county used money from the general fund to replace it.
Prior to delivering the checks, Myers provided Collorafi with a $25,000 unsecured personal loan to assist with financing for the project.
Collorafi has never repaid that loan either.
