Guilty Plea Withdrawn: 1

There was a very interesting move recently made in the legal realm of the online casino world. David Caruthers, the former Chief Executive Officer of the online casino and internet gambling site, BetOnSports recently decided to withdraw his guilty plea. This announcement came just days before he was set to be sentenced from charges of online casino sports betting in the United States. The former online casino mogul seemingly out of the blue decided to reject the plea bargain that was presented to him by the US authorities. Carruthers changed his plea to not guilty according to the latest reports. Carruthers has been held under house arrest since 2006 agreed earlier this year to accept the terms in the plea bargain. The plea bargain meant that if he plead guilty he would be given three years in prison instead of the huge number that he would face if he plead not guilty.

Carruthers was charged with operating an illegal online casino and internet gambling site while also accepting players from the United States. The former online casino mogul was arrested when he was in Dallas flying from the United Kingdom to Costa Rica. It was then that he was charged with illegally accepting bets and wagers from players from the United States. Online casinos have been going through investigations like this since the United States government passed the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act. Regardless, the former CEO of BetOnSports was arrested while he was on board his flight to Costa Rica. One can only imagine how unpleasant that flight must have been for the other passengers.
