Online Sports Betting Indictments in the USA

Two men from Missouri charged by a federal grand jury

The US Department of Justice may have retreated from its definition of gambling in terms of the Wire Act, but internet sports betting is obviously still not welcome, judging by an action by a federal grand jury in Springfield, which unsealed indictments against two men in Missouri and having them arrested in Joplin.

William Lisle (57) and Kenneth Lovett (72) were charged in a 16 count indictment of using the internet to transmit betting information including placing bets on sporting events, doing that over the last eight years as part of their gambling business.

Whats more, Lisle is additionally charged with 15 counts for money laundering: in an effort to conceal his profit he sent money by Fedex to Costa Rica.
