Guilty Plea Withdrawn: 2

The former Chief Executive Officer of BetOnSports dropped a metaphorical bomb on the his lawyer and the US authorities who were charging him with illegal online casino operation. David Carruthers was scheduled to receive his formal sentencing from the plea bargain which he accepted last April. The online casinos which were operated under his umbrella were not allowed to accept players from the United States and that is exactly why he is in so much trouble. The surprising announcement came days before his sentencing and the day when the attorneys were going to ask that the remainder of his sentence be served under house arrest. The trade off would have meant that the former CEO would be able to spend those three years in the plea bargain in his home instead of having to spend them in prison.

That sounds like a pretty good deal, but apparently the former Chief Executive Officer of the online casino and internet gambling site does not think that it is good enough. The initial plea bargain included the federal prosecutors dropping six of the other charges that he was facing. If those charges are brought back due to the changing of his plea, then Carruthers could once again be facing up to 20 years in prison and this time the prosecutors may not be quite as nice as they were the first time around. The US government’s attorney and the attorney of David Carruthers could not be reached for comment immediately. That means that we still do not know exactly what the motive behind the plea change is. So we have to wait and see how the US government handles this trial and whether or not Carruthers will get a better or worse punishment from his illegal internet gambling site and online casino charges.
