Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich banned Richard Stevens, Anthony Stevens and David Stevens from taking part in automobile or paving businesses in the state.

Brnovich accused the men of violating the Arizona Consumer Fraud Act. They have been ordered to pay $18,401 in consumer restitution as part of an order of default judgment against their former businesses: A&D's Auto Care and Collisions, A&D's Auto Care, A&D Auto, A&D Auto Body and Desert Paving.

According to Brnovich, the businesses accepted money for repairs they never completed.

Brnovich also says Anthony Stevens falsely told customers he was licensed by the Arizona Registrar of Contractors.

The men also must pay $100,000 in civil penalties and $16,580 for the state's legal fees. The Stevens' main place of business was at 2631 N. Stone Ave.
