Connecticut and Louisiana cases finalised

Online sportsbetting cases in Connecticut and Lousiana were finalised this week with two defendants sentenced.

In Connecticut, USA District Judge, Vanessa Bryant, sentenced Domenico Manchisi (65) to six months behind bars for his role in operating an illegal sports gambling business through Costa Rica website 44wager.com.

Federal prosecutors said Manchisi's role involved picking up cash from the gambling ring organised crime operation in New Haven and delivering it to another operative in Stamford.

The FBI recorded conversations between Manchisi and others in building the case against him. An FBI analysis determined that the operation took in $1.7 million from October, 2010 to June, 2011.

Manchisi was one of 19 defendants indicted in the 44wager.com case; some have pleaded guilty and been sentenced (see previous reports) and others are still in progress.

In Shreveport, Louisiana the Associated Press news agency reports that a Bossier City man has been sentenced to three years' probation and a fine of $50,000 for operating an illegal internet sports gambling site.

USA District Judge S. Maurice Hicks Jr. sentenced 34-year-old Terry Lee Doty Jr., who pleaded guilty in April to one count of transmission of online sports wagering information - a federal felony offence.

FBI investigators gave evidence that Doty was the local administrator for an unnamed internet gambling site based in Costa Rica, and had about 280 clients...one of whom was an undercover FBI agent.
