PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Two people from Oklahoma have pleaded guilty in a scheme to entice South Dakota consumers to buy their asphalt laying services.

Sixty-four-year-old Sylvester Cooper Sr. and 41-year-old Leonard Cooper, of Spiro, Oklahoma, are charged with failing to inform buyers of their right to cancel and failure to furnish cancellation forms.

Attorney General Marty Jackley says the two men told consumers they had extra materials they needed to sell at a good price. However, no nearby job had been performed, the product was not applied as agreed to by the consumer, and it did not perform as promised by contactor.

Jackley says the men failed to provide the three-day-right to cancel or the notice of cancellation form, which violated state consumer law.

The men agreed to pay back $70,000 to victims.
