State’s investigation into Mid-Continent could be done by year’s end
The investigation into Mid-Continent University could be complete by the end of the year.
Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway tells Local 6 he intends to have the investigation wrapped up by the time a new governor is in office in 2016. Conway is running for Kentucky governor as a democrat.
Conway said he could not comment on possible criminal charges.
He did say there is a group of people interested in getting the institution back up and running in some capacity.
Before that can happen, he says his office is developing an assurance of voluntary compliance, which is an agreement between a state attorney general and an individual or business to prevent any future violations of consumer protection laws. It is not an admission of guilt.
“Mid-Continent or its successor entity will have to abide by all of those terms,” Conway said. “Those terms will have to be presented in court and we are working on finalizing that agreement.”
As for students receiving letters right now concerning paying back their student loans, Conway recommends you call their Office of Consumer Protection first. The number is 1-888-432-9257.
