LaFonds get jobs at Motor Mall in Grand Rapids

STANTON, Mich. (Greenville Daily News)-- A Greenville father and son who issued fraudulent warranties at their auto sale business have found new employment at another car dealership.

John LaFond, 67, and his son, Jonathan LaFond, 41, are employed at the Motor Mall of Grand Rapids on 28th Street.  They stay in the Montcalm County Jail in Stanton at night and are let out in the day on work release.

The state accused the LaFonds of selling warranty contracts from Complete Automotive Repair Services of Murrysville, Pa., but never sent the money to the warranty company.

The Lafonds' business displayed a sign from Preferred Warranties Inc., but this company was not connected to the contracts the LaFonds sold at their dealership.

GPS - Back to School Advice

From: http://www.greenville.k12.mi.us

Here are a few steps that parents can take to help smooth the transition back to school:

1. Before buying back-to-school clothing, check the school’s dress code to ensure that your child will be in compliance (see the
enclosed flyer).

2. If it’s a transition year for your child from middle school to high school or if your child is new to the district, visit the school
to familiarize them with the building.

3. Many new high school students are anxious about their ability to master the combination lock on their locker. When you
visit the school, have your child practice unlocking their locker.

4. If your child participates in sports, make sure that they have had a recent physical exam (after April 15, 2010), and that the
proper forms have been completed and returned to the school.
