Update: Sentencing of Online Gambling Enablers

Arizona men condemned to probationary punishments

A report arrived this week that two men from Scottsdale, Arizona were sentenced for their involvement in an Internet sports gambling conspiracy.

One of them, Oscar Barden (37) received three years' probation and 150 hours of community service, whereas the other one, Richard Michael DiCapua (69) was sentenced to two years' probation and 100 hours of community service.

The two men pleaded guilty to being involved in an extensive sports wagering operation from March 2007 to August 2009. The operation used online-based sportsbooks located in Costa Rica to make and track bets on sporting events, and it was led by Daniel Meisel, who acted as the bank or house for the operation, but at present time remains a fugitive.

There were six other defendants in the same case who were sentenced to three years of probation and 150 hours of community service some weeks ago, after pleading guilty to one count of conspiracy in transmission of wagering information and operating an illegal gambling business.

As for the remaining two indictees, Christopher Finn (39) and Todd Kaplan (38), Finn was more involved in the business, so he received a four year probation term, along with eight months of home confinement and 200 hours of community service, whereas Kaplan pleaded guilty to misprision of a felony and was sentenced to three years' probation.
