An indictment was filed against Mitchell in September of 2012 claiming he operated organised high stakes poker games at his home and took sports bets. He was also accused of betting via an online betting site based in Costa Rica and then conspired to launder more than $8 million in proceeds.

In July, Mitchell pleaded guilty and admitted to all charges.

There were nine other defendants in the case, one of whom - Richard Hancock - received a 15-month prison sentence and forfeiture of $2.5 million last year (see previous report).

Judge David Russell allowed Mitchell to remain out on a bond pending the start of his term of imprisonment next month.
