Update: Gulity Plea in Missouri Grand Jury Probe

Two men charged with use of internet to transmit wagering information

Two defendants in a Missouri Grand Jury investigation, Joplin residents William Lisle (57) and Kenneth B Lovett (72), who were admitted before United States District Judge Richard E Dorr under the charges of utilising the internet to transmit wagering information between January 1, 2003 and February 8, 2011, during the course of running their gambling business, have pleaded guilty to the charges this week.

In the case, initiated and investigated by the FBI, IRS-Criminal Investigation and the Joplin-Missouri Police Department, and prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Randall D Eggert, it is claimed Lisle joined Lovett's business in 2006, and that since then until 2010, the duo shared income and expenses from two internet websites whose servers were located in Costa Rica.

In their plea agreement, it was stated that the operation grew in customers and wager amounts thanks to the transfer of the two offshore sites in 2006. There are also details of fifteen instances of money laundering on the part of Lisle - he apparently sent cashier's checks, payable to a false name and worth a total value of $72 000 via Federal Express to the Costa Rican website operator.

Hence, Lisle, who pleaded guilty to the money laundering charges as well, is required to forfeit the $98 263 seized by law enforcement during a raid on his residence to the United States Government.
