Canadian Software Specialist Denies Indictment Claims

What direction have the feds taken?

There may be some serious confusion or a wholly new direction taken by the US law actions in the federal indictment of a Canadian software specialist David Parchomchuk, who this week denied the US Attorney and Homeland Security Investigations accusations that he is involved in the ownership of ThrillX Systems, a company named in the indictments as operating an illegal internet betting business.

He said that his relation with ThirllX involves consulting on software solutions, which leads to the question whether the charge is wrong or perhaps the enforcement agencies are extending their reach, which would have some rather serious implications.

Parchomchuk's lawyer Jeff Ifrah, in addition claims that his client is in no way a part of the ownership structure of ThrillX, or its related operations BetEd or OneUpNetworks.

He stated: 'By indicting a software programmer, Maryland has expanded the definition of who is 'in the business of' gambling. Traditionally only operators, processors and their owner/directors have been included in this definition.'

As for Parchomchuk, he stated that he had no reason to believe he could be charged for merely providing technical consulting services to another company, adding: "As a husband and father I would not have jeopardized my livelihood, or the security of my family.'

The indictment, which uses information collected by federal investigators' phony payment system Linwood Payment Systems, reportedly claims that ThrillX, Parchomchuk and Darren Wright, were engaged in money laundering, and that the two men 'did knowingly and unlawfully conduct, finance, manage, supervise, direct, and own all or part of an illegal gambling business…'

So far, Parchomchuk's trial has not been scheduled, says Ifrah.
