WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

Three former salesmen for a Wichita car dealership have agreed to pay more than $48,000 after they were accused of deception.

The Sedgwick County district attorney's office says Angelo Jefferson, Barry Ristick and David Ephrem were salesmen for Lucky 7 Used Cars on South Broadway. They allegedly failed to disclose safety recalls, were not properly licensed, failed to provide titles to customers, and failed to honor warranties.  Lucky 7 is no longer in business at the location.  

The men entered into a consent judgment to pay $40,000 in civil penalties and $8,318 in restitution.

A civil action against Alonzo Anderson and Lucky 7 Used Cars is pending and jury trial is scheduled for May 14.

District Attorney Marc Bennett reminds residents that safety recalls affect millions of cars and residents should inquire before buying a vehicle if the vehicle is subject to a recall. Residents can check their cars, trucks, and motorcycles for recalls at safercar.gov/vin.

"Recalls are free and repairs are covered by the manufacturer. Customers should also receive certificates of title within 60 days of vehicle purchase," Bennett said. "Otherwise, a transaction between a customer and a business is void and customers are entitled to a full refund."
