CONSENT ORDER



DOCKET NO. 99-ALJ-09-0605-CC



This is an insurance agent license revocation case. The Respondents requested a public administrative hearing when the South Carolina Department of Insurance notified them of its intent to revoke their respective licenses.



Rather than proceed with a formal public administrative proceedings, the parties have consented to, and are hereby ordered to comply with, the following arrangement.



1. Respondent Vernon Washington is no longer qualified to hold either a resident insurance agent license or a surety bail bondsman license in South Carolina. The Department will impose no disciplinary action against the licenses held by Respondents Timothy S. Butler and AA&JJ Bonding Company.



2. The Respondents will provide to the Department proof of their having satisfied the premium alleged to be owed and outstanding in this matter to Nobel Insurance Company within forty-five (45) days from the date of an audit by an independent CPA of the Respondents' transactions for Nobel. The Respondents are to arrange matters with Nobel to have this done. If Nobel chooses not to pursue this matter further, upon the insurer giving written notice to the Department to that effect, the Department will waive this requirement. If the Respondents do not otherwise timely provide proof of their having satisfied this matter with Nobel, the Department will revoke the Respondents' licenses without any further disciplinary proceedings.



3. Respondent Timothy S. Butler must undergo 6 classroom hours of continuing property and casualty insurance education courses beyond the statutory requirement of S.C. Code Ann. §§38-43-106 and 38-53-85 (Supp. 1999) and provide to the Department the original certificates of attendance proving his completion of this requirement by March 1, 2001. These CE hours may not be fulfilled via correspondence courses and will not be eligible for carry-over pursuant to §38-43-106. If Butler does not provide the required proof of his timely having taken the additional continuing insurance education courses, the Department will revoke Butler's licenses without any further disciplinary proceedings.



The parties have reached this agreement through negotiation and compromise. The parties expressly agree and understand that compliance with the terms of this agreement constitutes full accord and satisfaction of this matter.



AND IT IS SO ORDERED.
