POCOMOKE CITY, Md. - The Craigslist scam that left one Pocomoke city mother and her four children homeless has ended on a positive note.

Robert Austera pleaded guilty to three counts of theft. In May - we spoke with Mindy Page who said she met Austera on Craigslist and signed a lease to move into a house on Laurel Street. But authorities say Austera didn't own the home - and was only hired to do maintenance. Austera was not charged in Mindy's case but pled guilty in similar cases. As for Mindy - she worked out a deal with the actual homeowner and she and her family are now living in the Pocomoke house.
