LITTLE ROCK – Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge today announced a judgment against Antonio Flowers, of Pulaski County, for failing to complete paid-for services to more than ten consumers in Central Arkansas, including a children’s daycare facility. A Pulaski County Judge ordered Flowers to pay $130,000 for thirteen violations of the Arkansas Deceptive Trade Practices Act. The judgment also requires Flowers to pay an additional $16,545 to the State that will be disbursed to the victimized consumers. In addition to civil penalties, all of Flowers’ business or professional licenses are suspended until restitution, civil penalties, and fees are paid in full.
“Antonio Flowers took advantage of consumers across Central Arkansas by accepting work that he had no intention of completing,” said Attorney General Rutledge. “The judgment against Mr. Flowers ensures that he faces the consequences of his actions and repairs the harm that he has caused for Arkansas consumers.”
