Criminal Justice Deceptive Practices

Tucson, AZ: (Mar-19-08) Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard brought charges against Tucson College, alleging that the college engaged in deceptive practices, representations and advertising in connection with the school's criminal justice program. Court documents reveal that between August of 2006 and June of 2007 the college allegedly misrepresented that it's criminal justice program provided the only professional and required training needed to qualify graduates for entry-level careers as law enforcement officers.

As part of a settlement agreement reached by both parties, state officials claimed that Tucson College agreed to pay the Attorney General's office $325,000 to resolve the deceptive practices lawsuit. The settlement will require that the college fully refund student loans and payments for all 57 students who enrolled in the program, and will also be required to help fund a statewide consumer fraud education program. Keith Cravens, regional Vice President for Tucson College stated that this was an isolated situation under former management, and following the lawsuit, systems are in place to see that it does not occur in the future.
