Local Contractor Gene Gore Back in Jail

Following charges of ripping off a Snellville homeowner, Gene Gore is back in jail for contempt of court.

Gene Gore, 57, was arrested today for "failing to turn over a list of assets and other documents in a civil case brought by Melissa and Alen Delic," according to WSBRadio.com.

The Delics won a $175,000 judgment against Gore three years ago.

“We sued him over the $30,000 job that he took on and didn’t complete,” Melissa Delic previously told Patch. “We were awarded the $175,000 because we had to have plans and work redone. He got contractors in to do the work, we gave him progress payments, but he never paid the contractors. After we fired him, the contractors came and asked us for the money because they had never got it from him.”

Gore was arrested by Snellville Police in July on accusations doing it again.

"The victim paid Mr. Gore a little over $4000 for contract work to be done on a rental property," said Snellville's Sgt. Greg Perry. "The money was taken, but the work was never completed."

More victims came forward after Gore's July arrest, according to WSB. He is behind bars until he can produce the documentation specified in a court order.

A jury acquitted a Naples man of helping his wife commit suicide by giving her a gun when she threatened to kill herself. Gene Lenox Gore, 48, was accused of giving Sandra Gore, his wife of 11 years, the .357 Magnum revolver she used to fire a shot into her head while they were riding around Naples in his pickup on Oct. 5, 2001. The couple had argued in a restaurant and continued to argue as they drove. Sandra Gore, 35, said she wanted to die, and her husband placed a loaded handgun on the seat next to her, telling her to go ahead and shoot herself. She did. In his testimony, Gore, who works as a construction contractor, said his wife had shot the gun before and was familiar with how it worked. He carried it for personal protection and usually kept locked in a closet. He put it in his truck for a planned out-of-town trip the next day, he testified. Gore testified during his two-day trial that he thought his wife was kidding when she said she wanted to kill herself. "I didn't believe she'd do it," Gore said. He was charged with manslaughter and assisted suicide. The jury acquitted him after two hours of deliberations Wednesday. "It's a great relief," Gore said. He said that many times, prosecutors made plea offers, "but I felt I was innocent and I stuck with my beliefs." Sandra Gore's relatives were angry with the verdict. "Sonny Gore has shown once again that he's above the law. He's a killer," said Debbie Smith, Sandra Gore's sister.

Thank you for that advice, Ben.

It is pathetic that someone would post something like this as is it only serves to harm the innocent parties such as the three children and extended family who involved with this tragedy. Children that have moved on in life and done well despite the challange of reliving this tragedy every time some "punk" wants to post this misinformation.Moreoever, Mr. Gore was found not guilty by a jury of his peers, and in addittion the information you have posted is inaccurate and misplaced and it is obvious that you whom ever your are did not slither into the court room and hear the real testimony. Now, why don't you slither back ubder the rock from whence you came. Gene Gore

First and foremost, the Delic case is on appeal and the information they have submitted to the public is not correct, and this will be proven as this case continues to progress through the legal system. In fact, I did do a great deal of work on the Delic project including addittional work that was required by the county, as well as other work that was performed over and above the agreed upon price,which Mr, Delic authorized but refused to pay for. In addittion,there were a slew of issues that came up during the permitting process that were caused by Mr. Delic because he annoyed the county building officials by starting work on the project without a contractors license, and building permit, and as such the project was shut down by Code Enforcement.Moreover,Mr.Delic has never personally paid me one dime for services rendered on this project,and I in turn spent counless hours fixing Mr, Delics problems, and I paid numerous professionals and others for services rendered on his project.. Also,if you had done a little research you would have found that Mr. Delic's attorney Yasha Heidari was repremanded a short while back in a lenghty public report by the Inspector General of Georgia for stealing from the taxpayers while working on the State of Georgia Ethics Commision.Imagine that right out of law school and already stealing from the taxpayers of Georgia and practicing unethical behavior that has now revealed itself in this instant case.

Time is not on your side all these bad things you have done for over 20 years is finally going to catch up with you :)

All I know is this.....Sonny is former ARMY and when I would come home on leave from the Marines, he and his family treated me kindly. I know nothing about this case but I will hold sonny Gore innocent until proven guilty. Sonny, you are in my prayers. Mark 'jarhead ' Katzeff.
Alan October 02, 2012 at 07:04 PM
Gore, your only defense is too mud sling everyone else so as to take the spotlight off of your own criminal activity. Man up--Karma has finally caught up to you. And do not even spout off about family. You were denied access to some of your own children due to your violent behavior. The Delics are hardworking and honest people (something you know nothing of) trying to run their business and raise a family. What pisses you off is that you finally got caught and time is not on your side. Well, hopefully you will have enough time, once convicted, to sit in your jail cell and contemplate all the evil you have ever done. I doubt it, but one could hope. God Bless you because no one else will.
Alan October 02, 2012 at 07:12 PM
Mr. Katzeff, my apologies that you even know Mr. Gore. You probably didn't have anything worth stealing or you would have been a victim also. He has a record in Georgia, Florida (numerous counties), West Virginia or Virginia, and North Carolina. But please, keep praying for him, because I promise you no one else is except a prayer that he goes to jail for a very, very, very long time!!!!!

Now he can add Deposit Account Fraud to his list of iniquities.
Truth Betold January 26, 2013 at 08:10 PM
I'm sorry but your list of crimes for Gene "Sonny" Gore is so inaccurate. Meaning the list is so much longer than you even come close to mentioning. His crimes of theft, lying, threats, violence, murder, scams is endless. And that doesn't even cover the things he didn't get caught for or charged with. He is the true meaning of bottom feeder, scum of the earth, waste of space. He is lucky to be sitting in jail and not someplace worse(which is what he truly deserves). He didn't care enough about his family and kids to be a decent person so don't bring them into this Gore like you care and defend them. I hope they know what kind of father you weren't to any of your what ? 7+ kids from numerous women you scammed. I hope they see you for the lousey human being you are, the worst possible representation of a man possible, a horrible father, a terrible brother, a dreadful friend, the worst business man you would ever hope to come across. Even your own father disowned you. (That should say it all right there.) I pity the people close to you. All I can say is beware people. Stay far far away. This is the devil dressed as a human being. Jail is too good for you, you deserve so much more.
Truth Betold January 26, 2013 at 08:13 PM
Check out the Naples News for more indepth list of crimes. But even that doesn't list them all. And BTW beware of his brother Gary Gore, he is right there with him, scamming and stealing, lying and cheating.
Truth Betold January 26, 2013 at 08:31 PM
****STOP****That is certainly not the first time for that: See Naples News for Ripping off the bank. Obviously he scammed someone there to make a deposit of 999,999.99 of which he went on days of a spending spree until they caught up with him and put him in jail for that. * Not to mention, the too numerous to list construction scams and frauds in Naples, and St Petersburg.

His brother, Gary Wes Gore stole money from me. He's currently doing business as Sack's Thrift Avenue in Atlanta. I have a pending lawsuit against him. Apparently it does run in the family.
Gene Gore April 20, 2013 at 02:12 PM
Aparrently Truth Betold does not have a real name; either way, the information you have provided to the public is highly erroneous and grossly inaccurate. Moreover, you have obviously jumped on the band wagon with your friends that obtained falty information from a close confidant of theirs who is a WELL KNOWN CHILKD MOLESTER. Moreover, had you known my father then you would know that he suffered from severe depression and Post Traumatic Sress Disorder and as a result he was extremely violent, and as such I was raised by my grandparents from the time I was twelve until my late teens.In addittion,your assertions about the bank are incorrect ,I mean come on, if I knew someone in the bank and they put almost 1 million in my account wouldn't they have arrested;moreover, if I had recieved that amount of money with the intent to steal it why would I stay in town.Also, there are many people right here in town that have met my children and grandchild and as such your assertions are false in that area as well. It is also important to note that I have been in the construction industry for thirty five years and at one time I employed 247 people and paid miilions in payrolls and materials and also recived numerous comendattions and accolades. Nonetheless, if you want to contact me just ask your friends for my number and I will be happy to discuss all of the errors in your post. Meanwhile, crawl back under your rock and Cease with the Libel and Slander.No Truth, in Truth Betold
Gene Gore April 20, 2013 at 02:31 PM
It is important to note that I have have never been convicted of any type of crime relating to violence or construction;in fact, the only time I was convicted of anything it was over- turned on appeal. As such, your allegations are once again untrue, and clearly meant to do harm to me and my family. In the meantime, use your real name, and bare in mind that I as well as others are inocent until proven guilty; moreover, you can rest assurred that I will diligently defend any legal action all the way to trial in need be. And, I can assure that as things progrees there will be a great deal of revelation about my accusers and your co-conspirators, as time will reveal that your constituants have problems that range from bigamy and drug addictions/dealing, to extortion and child molestation.Therefore, you as the ever so untruthfull, Truth Betold, should be very proud of the company you keep and all of your posts clearly represent the diabolical and slithering snake you are.For goodness sakes if you guys keep this up you are going to need a boulder to hind under. See Ya!
Mark Bove April 25, 2013 at 11:36 PM
To Mr.Gore's credit, he has paid me for most of the balance he owes. Most recently he has made contact again with me to resolve the remaining balance. I am happy to report that Mr. Gore has kept his word.
