Cedar Hill couple facing charges
Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott charged a Cedar Hill couple with orchestrating an unlawful scheme that deceived parents of high school seniors. According to the states enforcement action, the defendants marketed standardized test preparation materials by falsely telling parents their children had expressed an interest in the materials.
John J. and Frances Stuart have operated the Coppell-based SAT and ACT Prep Center Inc. since May 2008. The defendants solicited parents in several states in an effort to sell Scholastic Aptitude Test and the American College Testing exam preparation materials. Both exams are used by colleges and universities to make admissions decisions.
