CONSENT ORDER

This matter was initiated by a citation issued by the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division against Respondents on June 3, 1999, for violations of

S.C. Code Ann. Section 12-21-2804(A) and 27 S.C. Code Ann. Regulation 117-190 (Supp. 1998), for operating and maintaining more than five Class III machines (Class III machines are video poker machines licensed pursuant to S.C. Code Ann. Section 12-21-2720(A)(3)) at a "single place or premises.") The South Carolina Department of Revenue (Department) issued its Final Department Determination sustaining this violation and imposing a $5,000 fine against each licensee, revoking four Class III machine licenses, and also prohibiting the use of Class III machines at this location for a period of six months. Respondents appealed the matter, and it was transmitted to the Administrative Law Judge Division (Division).

Prior to the hearing, the parties entered into an agreement resolving the matter. That agreement is incorporated in this Order.

The agreement between the parties is as follows:

1. For the violation on June 3, 1999, Respondents agree to the revocation of the four Class III licenses on the video poker machines at the location at the time of the violation. Respondents agree to surrender these license nos. 3007483, 3007482, 3007470, and 3007474, to the Department no later than 5:00 p.m on March 1, 2000.

2. Respondents further agree not to operate or allow the operation of Class III machines at the physical location of the area doing business as "the Far Side" on the date of the violation, located at 1137B Reynolds Avenue, Greenwood, South Carolina for a six month period beginning March 1, 2000 (this area is accurately depicted on the attached diagram).

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

I find this agreement to be fair and equitable, approve such agreement, and hereby Order its adoption. This court retains continuing jurisdiction to enforce this Order. As Respondents no longer requires a hearing on this matter, I also Order this matter Dismissed with Prejudice.



AND IT IS SO ORDERED.
