The crackdown of all illegal forms of gambling seems to take shape across the U.S. even as different online bookies embrace pay per head software that comes with a myriad of benefits to users and casino operators.
On what has been seen by many as the law becoming more and more brutal to its citizens, ring leaders of the infamous 365Action.com who were accused two years ago for gambling malpractice, have been formerly charged.
Speaking of their charges, different newspapers across the U.S reported that the legal action against the ring leaders will not only instill fear among illegal gambling accomplices but also help curb ‘black market’ incidents.
After close to two years of investigation, the legal team for the ring leaders finally conceded that their clients, the ring leaders had a hand in the illegal online dealings.
Before a District Judge, Andres Arriaga and his friend Julio Alvarenga, both of whom reside in South California admitted that they played a role in aiding gambling they knew was illegal.
According to the duo’s legal team, their pleading guilty does not mean that the charges will either be withdrawn or shown mercy thus receive a lesser sentence. The law is clear and still binding. That was a first-degree aid to an illegal form of gambling according to the federal law.
The Queens DA office, which filed the lawsuit, says that it is relieved that all the hard work has finally come to a successful end. It is understandable why the Queens DA office would say such words.
Similar cases that have been handled in the past either are thrown out of court for lack of substantive evidence or drag in court in the verge of finding background information. In the end, there is no satisfaction in the side of those that file the cases.
An attempt to aid or promote any form of gambling that is seen as illegal in New York is considered Class A misdemeanor and punishable by law.
Arriaga has been on the run for close to two months. However, when word went round that he is in the intelligence pursuit list, he surrendered himself after which he was released on parole.
According to the lawsuit, Arriaga and his colleague had other accomplices. The cartel stretched from the state of New York through to California.
Still, there were others who were aiding the two from as far as Costa Rica! The total number of those who accused along with Arriaga and Alvarenga is 15.
Although the duo has been found guilty of promoting illegal gambling, their friends are yet to know their fate.
