Another bank has joined a parade of creditors in Pulaski County Circuit Court seeking money from a former Little Rock business owner.
U.S. Bank alleges that Alfred Bradford, former owner of the defunct Next Day Telecommunications LLC, hasn’t made payment on a mortgage since May 1, 2011. The debt of $417,306 is secured by a west Little Rock home.
The recent financial troubles aren’t the first for Bradford.
Bradford apparently owes the Pulaski County prosecuting attorney money for missing a fine payment on a fraud charge to which he pleaded guilty in 2005. (It seems Bradford had attempted to make a payment with 31 fake $20 bills. It landed him with four years of probation and a $500 fine.)
His probation may be over, but Bradford apparently still owes a lot of money.
Other creditors include a laundry list of banks, most of which were given default judgments against Bradford when he didn’t show in court.
A few examples: Riverside Bank of Sparkman is owed a $25,143 judgment for a loan Bradford took out for his former business; Metropolitan National Bank of Little Rock is owed $34,537 for another loan; MidTowne Little Rock Partners is owed $39,384 for rent Bradford allegedly did not pay on a space in that shopping center; TransUnion Financial LLC of Chicago is owed $6,462 for a loan to pay for legal services from other suits Bradford is involved with.
Since the original filing, Bradford hasn’t responded to the U.S. Bank suit, and the lender has motioned in August for a default judgment through Wilson & Associates PLLC of Little Rock.
Bradford told us he had no comment on the suits.
