Carl M. Miele    

Miele Electric/Power II LLC.  

Those seeking to contract an electrician in the Waterbury/New Haven, Connecticut area would be wise to steer clear of Carl M. Miele of Miele Electric/Power II LLC. Entering into any kind of business arrangement with this ill-tempered serial litigant could end up costing unsuspecting consumers thousands more than the bill he presents for services rendered. 

A simple search of civil and small claims court records in the Waterbury, New Haven and Hartford judicial districts reveals an alarming number of lawsuits that Miele has brought against his customers and vise versa. Miele is a well known face in the courtroom and has learned how to game the system to his advantage. An estimate from Mr. Miele may sound appealing, but once you are locked in to a contract, it soon becomes clear that the original quote is merely a down payment to months of misery as Miele drags you into court and seeks to collect on hidden costs and expenditures that you never agreed to.

Unlike others in his profession, Miele has no interest in establishing a rapport with his clientele based on mutual respect and quality of workmanship. To the contrary, Miele is looking to make the most money out of every project even at the risk of leaving the job on bad terms. Is it any wonder that the motto on his Linkedin (professional networking website) page reads: “Lighting up the world and making money.”

Once you open your door to Mr. Miele, he will immediately look for ways to cut corners. Hiring unqualified workers at a low wage is one way he ups his profit margin. In 2004, the State of Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection found Miele “guilty of causing electrical work to be performed by unlicensed people, performing incompetent and negligent work, and five code violations.” As a result, Miele was fined $20,500.00 and his E-1 electrical license was revoked.

Keeping quality workers in Miele’s employ is difficult because of his ill-mannered demeanor towards others. On the job site, Miele has a reputation for being loud and obnoxious and has no tact when chastising his employees. Profanity and shouting matches are common and have disrupted the day to day activities of households and businesses where Miele and his crew set up shop.

It cannot be denied that much of Miele’s anger stems from an out-of-control drinking problem. Both customers and employees alike have complained about smelling alcohol on his breath as early as the beginning of the work day. By days end, things get real ugly. In addition to making a bad impression on the job, Miele has also established himself as a violent, irresponsible drinker among those in his community. Public records clearly show a history of assault, resisting arrest and drunk driving convictions between 2002 and 2009. 

Miele's has been in trouble civilly, criminally and professionally. Knowing this, it should be clear that those who invite this troubled man into their lives are only inviting trouble for themselves.

MIELE CARL M - multiple felony charges

AUTHOR: - ()

POSTED: Saturday, November 21, 2015

As a result of his out of control substance abuse problems and propensity towards violence,  Mr. Miele continues to find himself on the wrong side of the law. A recent arrest on multiple felony charges is a clear indication that Mr. Miele has shown no remorse for his past indiscretions and has become a danger to himself and others. On October 2, 2015, Mr. Miele was pulled over by the Waterbury Police Department after running a stop sign and it was soon discovered that he had been driving on a suspended driver’s license.  A subsequent search of his vehicle found him in possession of firearms and illegal narcotics that he apparently intended to sell or distribute within 1500 feet of an elementary school or daycare center. Mr. Miele was arrested and is due to appear in court on October 26, 2015.

False claim and retaliation from sued client for non payment

AUTHOR: Carl Miele - (USA)

POSTED: Wednesday, October 07, 2015

In response to the fraudgelent statements made here against Miele Electric/Power LLC. We performed and excuted up to the terms of the contract and passed electrical inspection with this client on this project. We did not recieve payment from this client and after a 12 month period we were forced to sue them in small claims and won judgement for the full amount. 

This defamation of our companys reputation and professional for over 28 years in business is completely false. See our website for testomionals and satified clients www.mieleelectricpower.com

Criminal legal history

AUTHOR: - ()

POSTED: Friday, October 02, 2015

Over the course of nearly a decade, Carl M. Miele’s brash and irresponsible behavior has resulted in several run-ins with local law enforcement. His most recent series of criminal acts began in 2002 when he was arrested for--and ultimately convicted of--interfering with a police officer and resisting arrest. That was shortly followed by an arrest in 2004 for a violent assault, of which he was also found guilty and sentenced. In 2009, Mr. Miele’s out of control drinking resulted in yet another arrest for driving while intoxicated. Though the judge was kind enough to grant him probation, Mr. Miele demonstrated his usual disrespect for the rule of law by violating the terms of that probation just 3 short months later.

Bad things happen when Mr. Miele is behind the wheel of an automobile. In the same year as his 2009 drunk driving arrest, Mr. Miele was also involved in a collision that ultimately claimed the life of a woman driver. The surviving husband is now in the process of suing Mr. Miele and has thus far been successful in proving him at fault. In 2013, Mr. Miele filed a motion seeking to have a judge rule that the woman’s death was not caused by his reckless driving, but rather from her ingestion of narcotics taken after the accident.  Despite Mr. Miele’s pleadings, the court decided that his “conduct was a substantial factor in bringing about the decedent's death” and dismissed his motion. 

It would be hard to argue that Mr. Miele’s recent and ongoing troubles don’t weigh heavy on his mind nor contribute to an inability to stay focused on his work. His looming troubles also make one wary of entering into any kind of business relationship, especially in light of concerns that he may be looking for any opportunity to compensate for a potential financial downfall.  

1st one is for “Interfere With Offcr/Resisting” from 2002

2nd one is an assault arrest from 2004.

3rd is for DUI in Dec 2009. He got probation and it’s noted that he violated probation 3 months later.
