A Broken Arrow hunting guide pleaded guilty to consumer fraud Monday,
according to Attorney General Scott Pruitt.
James Adam Jenkins, 40, entered a guilty plea to three counts of
unfair and deceptive practices and paid $91,000 in restitution. Jenkins
operated a hunting guide business under several names including Big
Cedar Hunts, Sunrise Outdoors, Platinum Entertainment and BCH Land
Pruitt says Jenkins accepted deposits for guided trips to hunt deer,
elk and quail but then canceled the hunts without refunding the money.
He didn't have permission to hunt the land included in his
advertisements, according to the state.
He received a 5-year deferred sentenced and probation, conditional
upon paying his victims back.
The money Jenkins paid in restitution will go to his victims, Pruitt
Jenkins also is prohibited from engaging in the hunting guide business
while on probation.
