SCDOR vs. Ronald S. Maddox

South Carolina Department of Revenue

South Carolina Department of Revenue

Ronald S. Maddox




This matter was initiated by a citation issued by the South Carolina Department of Revenue ("Department") against Respondents for a violation of the Video Game Machines Act [S.C. Code Ann. Section 12-21-2804(A) (Supp. 1997)]. On August 6, 1997, Respondents were cited for having more than five licenses acquired pursuant to S.C. Code Ann. Section 12-212720(A)(3) (Supp. 1997) (referred to as "Class III" machines) at a single place or premises, in violation of Section 12-21-2804(A) and 27 S.C. Code Ann. Regs. 117-190 (Supp. 1997). A Department Determination was issued sustaining the imposition of the violation. The determination sought revocation of Respondent Jamey Kennedy's five, Community Amusement Inc.'s two, Craton Partners Inc.'s one, and Big TI Enterprises Inc.'s one, Class III machine licenses, that no licenses will be allowed for use in the location for a period of six months and a $5,000.00 monetary penalty against each Respondent.

Prior to the hearing, all Respondents with the exception of Ronald Maddox, executed consent orders resolving the matter. Ronald Maddox has now worked out an agreement with the Department. That agreement is incorporated into this Consent Order. The agreement also incorporates the prior Consent Orders issued in this matter between the parties dated April 27, 1997 and May 27., 1997. The agreement is as follows:

1. Respondent Ronald Maddox admits the violation of Section 12-21-2804(A) and Regs. 117-190 on August 6, 1997.

2. Respondent Maddox further agrees not to operate or allow the operation of Class III machines at the location Monte Carlo II, 212 N. Kings Hwy., Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, for a period of six months from April 15, 1998.

3. In consideration of the above, the Department agrees to waive the remaining monetary penalties sought for this violation as to Respondent Maddox.

I find the above settlement to be fair and equitable, approve such settlement, and hereby Order its adoption. As Respondent no longer requires a hearing on this matter, I also Order this matter Dismissed with Prejudice.
