CORPUS CHRISTI - More than two months after complaints first surfaced against a local wedding planner, brides-to-be are still waiting for refunds.
None of the women we've spoken with since May 20th have received promised refunds from Justin Lee Olle, the owner of Justin Lee Designs. Even though Olle told them he planned on issuing refunds the same week.
So far, 39 customers have come forward to police with complaints against Olle. Some families paid five, ten, fifteen, even twenty thousand dollars on planned events for their weddings.
A 'closed' sign was placed on the front door of the business shortly after our first report.
Essentially, his clients were told 'the checks in the mail.' Police tell us they're actively investigating all these cases.
A simple search of online court records shows Olle has a criminal record going back to 2006 that includes misdemeanors for theft by check and a felony conviction for forgery.
If you're one of the brides-to-be still waiting for a refund or even a return call from the wedding planner, give us a call at 884-6666.
