David Dodd II, the West Shore developer responsible for the defunct Capitol View Commerce Center in Harrisburg, will be sentenced Oct. 31 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania.

Judge Sylvia Rambo will preside over the 10 a.m. sentencing hearing in Courtroom 3 of the federal courthouse in Harrisburg, according to court documents.

Dodd pleaded guilty in November to federal fraud charges in connection with the unfinished $28 million project.

Capitol View was planned as a 215,000-square-foot printing, office and retail facility at Cameron and Herr streets. It was supposed to transform the struggling redevelopment corridor.

But contractors walked off the site mid-build in spring 2008, claiming they had not been paid.

Dodd was promised more than $17 million in local, state and federal money to build the facility. He spent more than $8 million in public money before the project soured, according to financial records.
