BRIDGEPORT - A Bridgeport real estate agent facing multiple larceny charges spoke exclusively with News 12 Connecticut.

Maurice Earley has been accused of keeping apartment deposits without delivering the proper services to his clients. Some say they gave him money for a residence they never received. Likewise, police say he has taken advantage of people who are at a financial disadvantage.

However, Earley says the allegations are part of a massive misunderstanding and that he has only kept money under the proper terms of his contract.

Authorities say Earley is due back in court on Oct. 3.
