PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - A 30-year-old Texas man has been indicted in South Dakota for allegedly violating the state’s deceptive trade practice laws.

Ricky Fite has been indicted on two counts of failure to inform a buyer of their right to cancel and two counts of failure to furnish a cancellation form. Both are class 6 felonies and punishable by up to two years in prison.

Attorney General Marty Jackley says the charges stem from an asphalt paving job Fite was conducting in Stanley County.

Fite was operating under the business names Tri-state Paving, American Paving, JLB Young Paving, Young Paving, JLBY Construction, American Asphalt and Ricky, Rickey & Ricky Asphalt.

The attorney general’s Consumer Protection Division is working with local authorities to determine if there are additional people affected.
